Howdy peeps. I'm still pretty new to this chicken business, any advice would be appreciated. I have a Sebright bantam hen. I've had her since June. I don't know exactly how old she is but I'm guessing she hatched between feb and march. When we first got her she laid 4 eggs in the first 2 weeks we had her. Everything I've read about Sebright's says they're not great layers (usually 2-3 eggs a week). So that was pretty spot on. Then she just stopped laying completely for just over a month. She looked and acted fine. Then in August she started cranking out eggs to the tune of 4-5 a week. Then, once again she just stopped. She hasn't laid for 3-4 weeks. I noticed yesterday her vent was prolapsed. I'm not sure if it happened yesterday or Friday since I was sick on Friday and didn't get out of the house for my daily observation of my flock. As soon as I noticed her yesterday I caught her, and brought her into the house in a dog crate. I held a warm damp wash cloth to her bum and got her vent to "pop" back in. It was still a bit bulgy looking but at least her insides were back inside. When I got up this morning it was out again (without her having laid an egg). I repeated the warm towel action from last night and got it back inside again. Just for her to, immediately upon being put backminmthe crate, poop. And as soon as she pooped it popped back out. I just applied honey to her backside, got her vent back inside again, and again, she immediately pooped and the vent prolapsed again. She's eating and drinking normally, and not acting sick. But I'm not sure where to go from here. Her vent doesn't stay in for more than a minute. Last time I held her for about 10 minutes. But she's not one who handles being held well, so EVERYTIME I try to hold her still to put and keep her vent in place for a substantial amount of time she fights me.... Am I gonna have to cull her?
