    Hi,

    Sounds like it could be a prolapse, but it takes a more experienced chicken person than me to say for sure. Do you have any pictures? That would be helpful?

    First you have to separate her from the other chickens. They will pick at that area and can cause her to hemmorage and die. Put a little Preparation H on a gloved finger and gently apply the ointment to the area. Make sure the area is clean. A warm water and mild soap bath might help a lot. Try to get at least a little inside the vent. Prep H is for inflammation. Repeat for about a week until prolapse shrinks. Hope this helps.
