    Came home from work today and found my dominant mutt hen (spurs and all) with a serious case of prolapse, almost 2" and bloody. The others were pecking her senseless every time she turned her back. I separated her, got out the gloves, calmed her down, and gently put her back together. She immediately re-prolapsed and expelled blood with a movement. More massaging and movements, with re-insertion of prolapse, followed by another massive re-prolapse and blood. I gently swabbed her down with damp paper towels and saw that she had been torn up at the end of her internals.


    I calmed her again and put her down on the block. It was for the best but man-oh-man what an awful feeling, I haven't had to do that before.

    You did what you had to do. I hope I can when I have too. Raising chickens is such a joy and then again....So sorry for your little hen.
