    Can someone tell me what this is and what to do. It wasn't there the past two days and just showed up today.


    It looks like a bright red vein with blood on it. I will try to attach a picture

    Where is it coming out of?

    You know, my instinct is? Vet.

    Very many things can be handled at home. But if this is seriously a vein or artery? You don't want to go pulling, poking, pressing, or trying to repair it.

    And this begs the question, how?

    Lots of things can LOOK vein-y: sinew, a tendon string, a muscle fiber; a vein? Would, generally, be bleeding. Badly.

    IN any event, ANY of these things; any scenario of the sort you describe? Sound scary to me; abnormal, and if there's a puncture or rip?

    This may be the first of bad things to come.

    I'd urge an abundance of caution; if you can't find a vet open, at least an experienced Chicken-keeper.

    My experience is not with chickens, but I'd make haste.

    I am NOT a medical practitioner or vet.

    I'm new to the forum; I do know you can post photos if you publish it to your desktop or know the file number; but I'd be glad to give you my email in a PM, if you can send it that way.

    I can not promise anything, but I'd take a look.

    Again, if this IS a vein? I'd suggest a vet, and quick.

    Emergency vets are uber expensive, but often they WILL accept a photo by email, too; to help give you clarity.

    Please ;let me know what you were able to do; O, and? I'd immobilize and isolate, if you have not done so already.


    Please let me know...


    Thoughts are with you.
