    This one didn't turn out well, but I was in a hurry. What is this? It's not an egg sticking out -- the outer layer looks like crusty poop but under that it looks like exposed flesh? Hard to describe but very yucky. And did I mention it stinks to high Heaven? It's a sudden on-set because I handled all 8 of them yesterday getting them in after free ranging and I know I would have noticed this!

    Help!

    Could it be gummy poo stuck to her bottom? Have you tried washing Hydro. peroxied might help a great bit. If nothing improves i would cull... [​IMG]

    I would suggest going to the vet and getting her checked out or look around and see if anyone else has had the same problem.[​IMG]

    I cant really see the pic but it sounds like she is trying to push something out and she is prolapsed.

    I would soak her in warm water I'd bet its hard poop lining the now prolapsed tissue. Sound right?
