    I have female turkey who has had a nasty back end for a bit her underneath feathers way down have been clumped with mud and poo and I’ve not been the best with keeping up with them or trimming them but it never affected her vent. For the last maybe 3 days or so I haven’t seen any normal droppings of solid poo, she just has been dripping a clear/ white liquid out. And teeny tiny baby piles of poo not turkey sized. So today I was trimming and cutting off all of those clumped feathers and looked since I saw odd drippings and found that she appears to be prolapsed and pushing hard and I’m not sure why :hit:hitshe also hasn’t laid since last July. Please help me. It’s almost dark here and clearly an emergency I don’t know why she’s pushing or what’s going on 22AB9F73-80F6-4570-9BA4-9062FB222691.jpeg 6578B8A7-93B0-479D-9860-0D94AE667455.jpeg

    Can you finish cleaning her up then very carefully check the inside of her vent with your finger?

    You need to start by cleaning all of the poop and nastiness away from her vent. Do you have access to warm water?

    Yes I do. So I gently clean that away with warm water and a rag? And then I have to try and stick a finger in while it’s prolasped?

    I still need to cut a lot of the feathers too. As some of it is way too crusted on
