    Awww. Poor little thing. I have zero experience with this but others here have dealt with this before. Hang tight. Someone will be sure to give you some ideas about what to do. Hugs!

    Is that the egg still in there? If so use some like olive oil or a warm bath to get the egg to come out. Other than that I don't know what to say, haven't had this problem before.

    Wow, I am so sorry...I have NO idea, I heard cleaning the area really well, and slathering it with honey works....but if there is an egg in there, you would have to get that out first. Maybe its time for a trip to the vet!?
  5. This is what has bin happening every day for the last three days. around the same time. We get the egg out everytime and the uteris or egg sack just goes right back on in her. We have bin massaging the egg out with olive oil as well. We have some vets we have bin talking to and we plan on maybe sutchering her up so it doesn't happen agian. We'll see. Still I would like to know anything if anyone knows. thank YOU!

    If it goes back in I don't think it is a prolapse by definition. Your hen prob ally just isn't lubricated enough so to say, especially since you are able to massage it out. Good luck in figuring out how to solve this.
