    I have a hen with prolapse, is it safe to eat her? I had a hen with prolapse last fall and we tried to help her but she died anyway. I didn't want to loose out on the meat this time. Any suggestions or advise?

    Using Preparation H and pushing things back inside has helped with many hens with this condition. The keep her in a dark place for a few days to a week to slow down/stop her laying until she heals. I would search on Prep H in BYC as I believe there is a particular type of Preperation H (Something you want to make sure isn't in it) to use. Good luck!

    Had a friend do this a few weeks ago and her hen is now fine.
