    Your hens may be partially prolapsed, and I am not experienced enough to help, very sorry. There are a huge number of ways to help these hens- involves vaseline and tenderness. I hope someone will jump in FAST for you, someone who knows from experience.

    Meanwhile I'm searching for some links for you.

    Back asap.

    Here we go-

    I don't know what others might suggest but here's what I'd say is going on.

    SHe probably tore a little when expelling a particularly large for her egg. Then is re-tearing it next time another egg comes through. As long as the others aren't pecking at her vent causing damage, I'd consider using a lubricant to help...uh...smooth the way for her egg laying until she heals and her little self gets used to passing the eggs. If the others are pecking at her vent making the situation worse, i'd consider sectioning her off a little until she heals. Without a pic, i can't tell what you mean by a little is sticking out. It could be serious , such as a prolapse, but it could also be as simple as swollen tissues that will return to normal once the irritation of the raw injury is healed.

    If you could get a photo of the chicken and the egg that would be a plus. I had this problem once because the chickens were a little to fat. (feed company messed up on formula) If its a little blood on the egg it should be fine as long as it doesn't continue for to long. If it is a lot of blood on the egg and on the vent I would remove her from the other chickens and keep an eye on her.

    Also could you not write in all caps thank
