    A couple days ago, Sunny had to be brought inside because of a very small prolapse. She's doing great but I'm wondering if she's healed enough to go back outside with her sisters or if I should wait another day. The first picture is a "BEFORE" and the second was taken this evening... we'll call it "AFTER" (hoping that the prolapse is gone)

    Hi, I'm not a big expert but I had a hen with a large prolapse that maybe went untreated for at least several days until I cleaned it up and pushed it in with my finger. Probably not too smart to leave it so long but I didn't know what to do. I had to push it in again several days later, putting my whole finger in a pressing it in there good. All was well after that. She stayed outside with the others the whole time. I suppose as long as none of the others are picking at her she'll be all right although I suppose there's always a chance it could be injured. Maybe make sure there's nothing sharp or splintery she can get caught on. It looks like it's pretty flush with her bum. If it were me, I'd probably put her outside with the others and just check on her here and there. Who knows maybe she'll heal faster at this point.
