    Separate her from the others. She may have suffered a prolapse, but hard to tell in the picture. I would soak her bottom in warm soapy water, and clean of the material. Then apply either honey or Prepearation H to her red tissue to reduce swelling, and try to push it back inside. Keep it moist with one of those 2 things, or use some oil, but don't let it dry out or the red tissue can die. Post a picture again when you get it clean, so we may see more clearly. Below is a typical picture of a prolapsed vent. Here is some info on prolapse:
