    Help! I just saw this on the baby Freya this morning. I called the local vet, the only one who deals with chickens. Their doctor isn't in until tomorrow. HELP! I've done a little research but would like to know more thoughts on how to handle this?! Is this life threatening in this stage?!!

    This was the best picture I could get from her. The whole vent is swollen and almost looks like there is an egg stuck!
