I am new here, so first off, Hi. I have had a hen almost two weeks now and she has had a little case of the runs off and on. I attributed it to the stress of the move and the change in diet and all that. But yesterday I went out there and her behind looked messy so I took a closer look and discovered what looked to be a little cyst or something coming out of her rear. Now I am really worried. She is a heavy layer and lays really big eggs and I am worried that she might have prolapsed, but I have never had anything like this happen to a hen, so it is really a shot in the dark. Can anyone tell me what is wrong with her? What could have caused this? and How can I fix this? or Is this problem spelling the end for Duchess Von Leghorn?
