Help anyone? We have a 9 month old, organically fed (Modesto Milling), free-range Buff Orpington with what appears to be a prolapse. Read the forum and the chicken chick. Gave her a really warm bath and when we got her out, the prolapsed area had disappeared. Her vent was still contracting so I don't know how long that will last. Went ahead and put honey around her vent as some said it helped reduce swelling. I did put a small amount of hibi-cleanse in the bath water. She is now in a box near the broody box so she can share the heat lamp. Her lower feathers were dripping wet - that's what made me notice her in the first place. The prolapsed area was only about as big as my thumb from the knuckle out. How do I know the difference between prolapse and a stuck egg? I did see her poop recently. Will a stuck egg prevent elimination? I read all about the calcium deficiency problems with uterine contracting. That made sense to me (a student midwife) so I put after-birth tea in her water (helps a woman's uterus contract properly and is high in calcium from raspberry leaf) along with vitamin/mineral pack, apple cider vinegar and probiotics. It's hard for me to imagine how she got a calcium deficiency since her food is such a high quality and we supplement with oyster shells. What should I do now? I'm sure there is a different treatment for prolapse vs egg bound. Thoughts, tips anyone? We really like our Orpingtons and hate to see her die so young. It's too late for me to call anyone locally and we are not inclined to spend a lot of money on vet visits if this is going to be a recurring problem. We will just cull her from the flock if we have to. It's just not our first choice. We'd like to help her heal and have a happy egg-laying life!
