One of my birds went through her molt in late summer. She started laying again a couple of weeks ago and now she's...not good. Symptoms: * Straining to pass the egg, with a red, swollen protruding vent; the two times I've been able to observe this chicken in the nest box I can see one side of her vent literally bubbling out as she strains to pass the egg, and the tissue is brilliant red * Each egg is covered with gloppy clear liquid (not eggwhite) and there are some urites stuck to the shell as well. * The bird continues to leak from the vent for some time after she drops the egg. She doesn't leak constantly * Occasionally she squats and blasts out some really nasty thin greenish-brown poop. The other chickens are all putting out nice tight urite-capped poops, color varies somewhat depending on what they've had to eat lately Diet: Kitchen scraps - fruit/veg only, no meat or greasy scraps; bugs, no-soy/no-GMO layer ration, yogurt twice a week I don't think this is vent gleet, but I've never seen it in person so I could be wrong. I'm wondering if the red swellling I have observed while the hen is trying to lay could be vent prolapse, or possibly an abcess in the vent? The hen is active and out there making a living (ie, working for bugs) when I observe from the window. She's the first one to the feed tray, and I see her regularly at the watering station. Any ideas what's going on here?
