  1. Is it common in this breed to prolapse? She was fine in the morning eating acting normal, went in to lay, literally took two steps out of the nest box and dropped dead. she was prolapsed and the egg and her bottom were quite bloody. I know prolapse can be common but was wondering if some breeds were more susceptible.
