Hello all, I’m having trouble diagnosing my old lady hen Julia, who’s having an issue with her vent. She’s an eight year old Rhode Island Red. She has been on the skinnier side since the beginning of the summer but behaves normally in every sense. She doesn’t lay much anymore and hasn’t laid in a couple months. I did just treat the flock for mites, alternating Permethrin dust and DE every other night and Julia had them the worst, though I caught it very early. I dusted her w DE last night and didn’t noticed any issues. I was re-checking her tonight and noticed her vent was scarlet red with some whiteish leision-things around the entrance. I did insert my finger () and didn’t feel anything hard blocking the track. When I withdrew my finger I noticed some clearish fluid and little white strands. I couldn’t tell whether that was feather dander (again she’s starting to molt) or worms. Any idea what this might be? And do you think this is something that can be treated at home or should I take her to a vet? Thank you!! I’m very worried about her.
