I have a either one or 2 yo Buff Orpington hen that presented yesterday AM with squatting and on closer inspection had a prolapse. I brought her inside, put her in the dark and attempted the honey/ olive oil treatment. It popped back out. I left her in the dark to go google and she ended up passing the egg. It was a fine egg, no thin shell, not especially large. I moved the hens to their permanent coop last week after a raccoon attack and all 3 stopped laying. I had been keeping them in a 6x10 dog kennel after they took out one of our 4 mo pullets. These girls are not very adaptable. I bought them fully grown and after bringing them home nobody laid for 6 weeks. Apart from the squatting before passing the egg, she was never distressed, eats fine and acts pretty normal. She still has the prolapse. I got some Prep H and tried that. It popped back out. I am leaning towards just keeping it dark to stop the laying, keeping the prolapse clean and letting her try to heal. I don't think messing with it repeatedly is helpful. Culling is not an option. These are my autistic son's pets. So here is where I am confused. Treatment for egg binding is to try to get the egg to pass. Treatment for prolapse is to stop egg production. I am assuming she has more partially formed eggs in there. What happens to those if keeping her in the dark is successful at stopping the laying? I should just treat for prolapse unless she shows signs of binding again right? Any suggestions would be so helpful. I am such a newb.
