    My 4yr old Buff Orpingtons still lay occasionally. This morning, after laying, one them developed a plolapsed cloaca. You can see both the egg, and the poop holes. I got Vaseline and pushed it back as far as I could, but half a minute later, out it would start coming out again. What should I do? Anybody? Help? Holding her upside down seems tho help, but that is no solution. I can't find information, & there is no chicken vet available. She is now in a dark quiet box, resting
