I know this may seem like a dumb question but bare with me I have a 7 mth old laying silkie whose 1st egg, several weeks ago, caused her vent to prolapse. following advice from here I doctored her up with a warm bath and the honey to push it back in and put her in a crate in the laundry room covered with a towel for a week. all was well for the couple of weeks she laid almost every day with no problem after I added her back to the coop. this week she was trying to lay an egg and it got "stuck" in a membrane like sac and I had to assist her in getting it out. She seemed fine everything went back where it was supposed to go. the next day when I collected eggs I noticed that she had prolapsed again. there is no blood she is eating and drink and general acting like her normal sweet self, doesn't appear to be in any pain has layed 2 more eggs. she has oyster shells available all day and I feed her layena feed. my girls get to free range several times a week for several hours at a time. can a chicken live with a prolapsed vent - she seemed more uncomfortable and unhappy when I "fixed" it than she does right now. I don't want to keep hurting her and I don't want to assume that she needs to be culled if she can survive as she is if that makes sense.
