    Hi I am a new member and have 12 hens and a rooster. I got on this site because I had two prolapse in 1 week. One I took to vet and have 400 vet bill. Second one trying to treat but prolapse won't stay in. How long should I give it to stay in ?

    Sorry to hear of your problems. What breeds are they? High production breeds/crosses tend to have a lot of female problems. I have heard that during the recovery stage it's best to keep them in a darkened room, so they are less likely to try and lay more eyes.

    G’Day from down under gerslyna [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope the folks on the ER Forum were able to assist.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
