One of my daughters barred rocks we raised from peeps for Easter has been kind of sneezing and coughing lately, sounding kind of gurgly. With the weather, it doesn't surprise me. Then today, we were setting up our little internal pen inside our main lot to introduce our austrolorps and I noticed her back side looking awkward. I picked her up and OMGOSH! She has bright red, stringy blood coming out, and what looks like a prolapse? I'm a cow/horse person with a degree in pre-vet, but didn't focus a lot of poultry. Is a prolapse even possible? She is really young, only 7 months probably and was laying daily! What's worse is the gagging smell! It's not your normal chicken poo smell, which she has a lot of loose poo stuck to her soft feathers around this "thing", too, but wow! I have the worlds strongest stomach with animals and I could've lost it! What is going on with my poor girl?! And of course, she's my daughters absolute FAVORITE hen! Please tell me there's something I can do for her :-( Vet should be calling any time, but I know how busy they are too.
