    My 11 and a half month old hen had prolapse for about a minute. I noticed it, brought her in, then when I checked again, everything was normal. What should I do? Thank you!

    I don't have any experience with it, but I did notice that the Frequently Asked Questions post at the very top of the Index page has some information available. I hope everything's okay!

    She may have pulled it back in herself and her muscles are still strong back there. I would just monitor her. If it was prolapse it will come back and at some point just hang outside the body and you'll need to help in putting it back in. She may have just been flexing back there and you happened to see it, so it may be nothing.
