    Is it primarily just around her vent? Any swelling? Have you checked for mites/lice?

    I'm sorry to answer your question with more questions.

    Swollen & Bright red. Lost all her feather around her vent, but there's pinn feathers growing back I observed this evening. No mites or lice that i've found in the crib or on any of the girls, (We have 8 asst. cuties). Every one else seems fine. thx for the response...

    Are you sure it's swollen or does it just look that way, being bare of feathers? When my girls molt, their bare bums are quite red sometimes.
