    My light Sussex hen has prolapse :(
    I bathed her is Epsom salts
    Then pushed the vent back in
    I have done it twice now and it keeps popping out :(

    I'm soooo worried about her and I'm so scared she will die :( I love her sooooo much :( what can I do and what shall I do ?

    I've read that putting raw honey on will help. Put it on, wait fifteen minutes and push it back in. It is supposed to shrink it and kills germs. Also add some apple cider vinegar to her water, just as a precaution to help fight infection.

    Hope this helps.

    Also, you should isolate her in a low light place (in hopes that she won't lay, giving her a chance to recover).

    It might take a while. I read of someone thinking it didn't help but it just took a few days and the hen recovered.

    Keep on trying!
