    Her butt is pulsating, and protrung about a 1/2 inch out. After cleaning her up, there is some clear fluid in the vent. Any help GREATLY appreciated. She is in a brooder with 26 other chicks, and all has been good till now. Thanks.... [​IMG]

    Type 'vent prolapse treatment' in the search bar at the top of the page - several threads will appear. The application of Preparation H might help, but check out the threads. Good luck.

    Thanks sourland, I have check those out. I have just lubed her with honey, isolated her, and put another friendly chick in with her as she freaked being alone. She just pooped big time, so I am hoping this is a good thing. She is still sticking out, but hopefully the honey will help till we can get to town for some prep H without pain meds in it. Thanks for the quick comeback, We will keep her covered and stress free as poss. ..... R
