My lovely white Bantam (Lady White) started laying last week. The cutest little eggs I've ever seen. Anyway, she is an extremely placid girl and my toddler, who loves her, takes full advantage of this fact. This morning he walked into the loungeroom carrying our lovely Bantam looking very proud of himself. He only started picking her up a couple of days ago when he suddenly realised he could. When I carried her back outside and placed her on the grass I noticed that her rear was covered in poo which I hadn't seen before. I picked her back up and turned her upside down to have a good look and saw that she has a small but definite prolapse. I put her back down and went in the house to get some gloves and set up for a cleanup and bath. By the time I got her inside and looked again, the prolapse had gone back in! I proceeded to clip off all the dirty feathers and clean her up then placed her back outside. So my first question is....could the prolapse have been caused by my son squeezing her too hard? Is it usual for a prolapse to go back in by itself or am I just extremely lucky? I will continue to monitor her and call the Vet if needed but your thoughts and advice would be gratefuly accepted, cheers.
