I am a little concerned for my dear Ebony. Just a few minutes ago I was watching her and she squatted and lowered her vent feathers; the way chickens do when they're pooping. Nothing unusual. Usually when they do this, they wait a second, poop, and then stand back up again and get back to business. Well, Ebony just stayed in that position for a while, which I have never seen her do before. So I bent down and looked at her vent, and I saw that there was a little bit of flesh sticking out. It was not very much at all, but I did see that it looked like a section of it was a little bloody. After a while, she stood back up, but then she did the same thing again, and this time I saw that there was a bit of poop hanging in the flesh, and she was trying to get it out. She managed to get all of the flesh back in to her abdomen, but after she was done, she bent back and preened around that area, which makes me think that it is painful for her. I noticed that the area under her vent is also slightly red. She seems fine otherwise; eating, drinking, moving around, etc. After I saw this happen, I realized that I had seen her do the "poop position" unusually long yesterday as well, but I didn't think much about it and I hadn't seen her vent. Ebony is my little sweetheart and I will do whatever it takes to fix this. I am not so worried about what I saw but more so that it could get worse. I have heard about cases of badly prolapsed vents and I don't want to have to deal with it, or not to mention Ebony suffer through it. All information and advice is greatly appreciated. If you need any more information then just ask. Thank you so much!
