A few weeks ago we noticed one of our BR's had poop stuck to her rear feathers. My husband held her and I hosed her off - and discovered a nasty icky mess under the poop and feathers. I did a search on the forum and learned it was a prolapsed vent - she must have been the one that gave us the really large egg - I was walking funny after just looking at it We were fortunate that the ovaduct had not also prolapsed. We cleaned her off really well using warm water, and then followed the suggestion for using honey on the prolapsed body part. It went back in immediately and there has been no further problem. Because her rear area looked like diaper rash we also slathered neosporin ointment on her. I really think she appreciated it. By the second day after our treatment you couldn't even tell anything was amiss - thank goodness! We were concerned someone would begin to peck at her. I know this is new baby season, but I wanted to put a good word in for the honey cure if someone else has a hen with similar problems.
