Help! I am new to raising chickens. I have one chicken, who stopped laying a few months back, she is over a year old. But noticed she seemed broody the other day. She now has blood and clear jelly like discharge coming from vent. She is eating and drinking (has ACV in water) and her comb is not pale at all.

For starters, please read through this. https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...ng-from-vent-prolapse-oh-my-what-to-do.76124/

It has all the information in one place that I usually give when this subject comes up.

It helps to install the hen on a thick absorbent towel so you can easily monitor how much fluid she's losing and when she passes any egg material.

Are those red blood spots wounds from being pecked or are they dried blood from her vent? Does she periodically pulsate her vent, especially if you are pushing against it? Is she drinking more water than she usually does? It's important you provide her with plenty of fresh water so she doesn't get dehydrated from losing fluids.
