    It sounds like a prolapse, could be possibly due to straining while laying a large egg. Apply Preparation H or honey asap and you need to push it back in. It may pop back out, but you need to keep pushing it back in.

    Search for prolapse on here, you'll be able to pull up more info on it.

    Good luck. Keep her separated from the flock. You will have to keep her in the dark so she doesn't lay eggs for a little while.

    It sounds like she's prolapsed from being egg bound. Sometimes soaking their rear ends in warm water helps them to pass the egg.

    Great advice here so far. I went through having a hen with prolapse last year. A warm bath and preperation H and keep pushing it back in. Good luck.

    shes not egg bound laid a egg 2 days ago. Though I have been sticking it in and she just keeps pushing it out. Though the bleeding has slowed down to barley nothing. Ill keep her in the dark. Thanks by the way ill keep you updated.

    Quote:Just because she laid an egg 2 days ago does not mean she's not egg bound now....it can happen in one day's time. Can you feel an egg up the oviduct?

    Keep her for now in a comfortable DARK place so her body stops trying to make eggs -- until she heals. Assuming this is a prolapse, it can take time for her parts to stay inside where they belong - you may have to help her several times before it resolves. Do a search here on BYC under prolapse and you'll get lots of great info.
