We just added two new chickens to our small group. Picked them up in the dark Sat. night, so didn't notice a problem until tne next day. The hen (maybe a RIR) had a coating of white on her feathers below her vent. It partially went away, but decided yesterday to take a closer look. By this time there was a prolapse. She has been laying regularly (until now) so I don't think she is eggbound. I can't feel an egg, but never have felt one before, so I'm not sure of myself. We washed her bottom with warm soapy water. I cleaned off the poo stuck on the prolapse...sprayed it with Benzocaine, and pushed it back in...also using neosporin and a hemorrhoid ointment. Put her in the house last night. Dried her with the hair dryer (she liked that!). Fed her only lettuce, banana, and tomato last night. She ate and drank with no problem. She seems happy enough...will answer her husband, a big RIR, as he crows for her outside. Gave her oatmeal this morning, which she loved. I do not see any more prolapse, but I haven't picked her up to look closely. My main question now is that she is dripping liquid from her vent. Some is white sticking to her feathers, but I believe some is pus also. I also see some "normal" poop along with the liquid. I would like to get some antibiotics for her (maybe from the feed store if it opens tomorrow) but have no idea what to get. My vet does not deal with chickens much, and is closed now anyway. He might give me something for her (he has known us for years) just to try, but I don't know if he will be open tomorrow or not. So....does anyone have any ideas? I sure hate to lose this beautiful chicken, and I'll try most anything anyone can suggest to me. Thank you.
