    Looks like a prolapsed vent. If you take your gloved hand you can usually feel an egg up there. What are you feeding her? Hoping for the best! Oh and :welcome Regards, Leaf

    I'm no vet but I have seen a lot of tv shows with vets treating this. I haven't seen it in a chicken before but what I suggest is try to get out the egg if you can and either you push back in what's sticking out or you cut off the circulation with a rubber band however like I said I've never seen a chicken have it and you may prefer a vets opinion rather than trying to do it yourself, I hope this helps!

    I wouldn't try to cut off any circulation. It may just make the problem worse. Disclaimer: I have no formal veterinary training either. :)

    Probably not they really only do it if there's no blood flow I think but going to the vet is probably the best idea

    Unfortunately, many cannot afford or do not think it neccassary to take a chicken to the vet. (Not talking about OP at all, just in general.) But if it can be afforded it may be a possibility. There are few vets who practice anything that has to do with chickens though.

    Your 100% true but they did ask for help and I just stated that a vet is an option if all else fails :)
