    Have a hen that looks like she has hemroids. Not sure if caused from laying first egg? There is some blood. Some poop looks to be dried on one of the buldges. Washes her off. after cleaning looked better, but still not sure of cause. Can anyone help?

    Sorry this didn't get an answer. It sounds like a small prolapse, if you don't know by now. I would set her in a pan or sink of warm water for a little while then put her in my spare bathroom for several hours to rest, and see if it doesn't go back in. If you have some Preparation H ointment, put a little on it, and a little way inside, as well.

    Here are some threads about it:
