    my little banty has a prolapse. From experience I know nothing really works. but I had a thought and wanted to know what everyone else thinks.

    What if I kept her in a dark place so she wouldn't lay eggs, and then pushed in her prolapse, and put skin glue on the sides of her vent so she couldn't push it back out but could still poop?

    Probably a crazy idea, but just a thought.

    Well...super-glue was first developed for field wounds, and they used it to fix me after a surgery. We used it to fix cuts in the kitchen I used to work in.

    I don't know that she wouldn't pick it off, making it worse...but who else can advise??

    Anyone?

    I agree about the dark place, but I would not use super glue! It burns. Try preparation-H I used it on my hen and she is much better!![​IMG]
