    What is this?? She was not like this yesterday. Is this from cocci?? What could this be? She is 6 weeks old. Just got her last weekend. It is like her insides are now outside of her butt and there is something long and stringy hanging down. I do not think it is a worm, it looks like part of her.

    Is there any hope for her? It doesn't look like it but I just have to ask. Is there any way I can treat this? If not we are putting her down in ASAP. What caused this? [​IMG]

    I would guess a prolapse but I have no personal experience. Is she 6 weeks old or 6 months old?

    Quote:6 weeks. I've never heard of a prolapsed vent in a young bird. I can't think of anything that could cause this. I've always braced myself to see a prolapsed vent or an eggbound hen but this is horrible.
