Three days ago, one of my hens showed up with a strange pink thing popping out of her vent - I reckon it's the tip of her abdomen, like a proplase or something like that. When I first saw it there was a liquid ( like the egg's white) coming out of there, but later it stopped, and she seems to be trying to poop all the time, but jsut a little, grey/white runny poop is coming or should I say spilling out.. all her feathers around the vent are very dirty (I should clip them..) and the vent is seems swolen and very dirty.. I put her apat in a seperate outbuilding we have on the farm, so the others won't pick at her. She seemed tired that day but today she seems better, she's eating and drinking and really wants to get out.. I've been meaning to give her a lukewarm bath with detoll and I was told to put on and inside her vent, just didn't have time to deal with it so far. Planning to do it later on today.. Any ideas? She's an old hen, don't know exactly how old (got her from a friend..), just a simple layer from the co-op, but otherwise she was healthy. Today I noticed another strange thing: her beak has turned white - as if covered by some sort of something. I'll post a picture later on. As I said, her behavior seems like normal, but her vent looks really really bad.. I have to admit I'm new to chickens and handling them and touching their vent is all new to me and kind of appaling so I'm not running to do that allthough I know I should.. Please let me know any ideas you mihgt have on what is going on with her?? Thnks!
