    One of my hens laid an enormous egg the other day, two days later, it looks like the inside of her is hanging out. I tried to "tuck" it back in, but it popped out again. Any ideas?

    Do a search in the emergencies section for prolapse.

    Sounds like a prolapsed vent. Kathy Mormino (The Chicken Chick) has detailed instructions on what to do for this on her website -www.the-chicken-chick.com. The others will cannibalize your poor girl if you don't fix it. Her instructions have always been life-savers for me. Hope that helps!
