I'm trying to save my young hen with a prolapsed vent. It has prolapsed almost every day for a week now, but her body pulls it back in with a little gentle help. She seems to be fine when she lays, but pooping afterwards is a struggle, and that's when the prolapse occurs. She keeps insisting on laying eggs, despite being kept in a darkened room. I withheld food for 24 hours yesterday. I gave her an egg in the evening and she had no problems. This morning, I gave her 1/3 cup fermented feed and she prolapsed again when she pooped. To let her muscles heal and to allow the swelling to go down, I'm going to try keeping her in a completely dark room with just vitamin water, no solid food. This is my last strategy before I put her down. I'm wondering how long I can/should withhold food before reintroducing solid foods and monitoring for prolapse recurrence. Or is a daily recurrence a sign that this problem will never heal? Your advice and experience is appreciated.
