Please help! I have a young Buff Orpington, around five months old, not yet laying, and the picture of health until now. This morning I noticed her straining, and her poo was kind of clear with perhaps a drop of blood, so I picked her up and checked her vent and felt her abdomen and everything looked and felt fine. I thought maybe she needed worming so watched her close today and read on the forum here. Later she went into the coop to rest. This afternoon she came out and I saw her straining to poo, and I could see the red of her vent. I picked her up and it is sticking out pretty far. I've felt around, and it is hard--there seems to be a full egg hanging out inside the red tissue. Poor thing! I've brought her in and put Preparation H on it and am going to search the boards here for more advice. What are the best ways I can help her right now? She is making the most pitiable noises. Thank you!!!!
