[/IMG] We're new to chickens and, although we've navigated a few other injury/illnesses in the past year, I'm not sure what to do for this poor bird. Is it a vent prolapse? The mass that is covering her vent (protruding from it? Scabbed over it?) is hard. We've soaked her in Epsom salt and cleaned the area, which was poo covered, and it didn't seem to cause her any pain.... But it clearly needs to be resolved promptly. She was quite normal 3 days ago, but last night the kids noted lethargy. We make the discovery a few hrs ago.
