    I have her in a separate brooder with a heat pad and some wet food. What can I do for her?

    I'm not sure what you should do. Pictures are always helpful. Someone here will know.

    I'm now thinking this is a blockage. It's about 1/2 inch and isn't looking like a prolapsed vent. It has blood on it but not bleeding. It's coming out slowly but surely
