    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]We just got this hen yesterday from a friend who needed to re-home her flock. Tonight we noticed this enormous mass between the hen's legs. Her vent appears normal and the mass is much lower. It is red and soft (fluid-filled?) and larger than a softball. Any ideas on what it could be and what we can do?

    not sure if th mass is infected or an infection of sorts but you can try antibotic, sounds like maybe a trip to vet to drain the mass would help. my dog had a huge mass like that the vet drained it and started antibotic. the dog is fine now.maybe this would help.
