    My 16 month old Buff Orph (Sunny) is oozing from her vent; at first I thought she had broken an egg internally, but that was over two weeks ago. Now it looks like diarrhea, green & white liquid. It's constant. She has become very thin, but continues to eat & drink, peck, scratch. The worst part is she stinks-BAD! I have been feeding her some yogurt and even soaked her bottom. None of my other five girls appear to be affected. Recently, she will stop and strain to poop and makes squawking sounds. Could she be constipated?
    I would really appreciate any kind of help, I would hate to lose her.

    Look up vent gleet and see if that is what you think she has. I lost one to it. I wish I had gotten some nystatin sooner.

    Good luck. I hope it goes well for you. I piddled around and didn't treat aggressively and lost her although there may have been more going on than just that.
