    My legbar had a vent prolapse, I was able to follow procedures to get her back to good health. It worked the first time and the second time however her vent gleet will not go away. Ironically she STILL lays daily no problem. I have tried EVERYTHING to cure her vent gleet and she is my ONLY hen with this problem. And when I say everything, believe me I have tried everything. What does one do with a hen that has this problem!?

    Thank you. She has been dropping eggs all over my backyard, sometime Two a day, it is so bizarre and because I can't possibly always catch her dropping them, my hens are eating her eggs. Is it safe to cull and eat a hen with this condition?
