Hi, I have only had chickens for 4 months. I have a 10 month old Plymouth Barred Rock that has a vent prolapse. Unfortunately in hindsight I believe she's had it for quite a long time. For the past 6 weeks or so I had noticed the area below her vent was starting to collect poop. I had assumed some chickens with particularly fluffy bottoms this happens to, she appeared normal and happy and was laying daily even now despite the temperature being around 32 degrees and shortened days. Three days ago I figured enough of the messy looking bottom and brought her in the house where I proceeded to spray/soak off all the dropping attached to her feathers. I then found the vent prolapse. She was moved inside to a nice warm spare bedroom. I have been soaking her twice daily in warm water for about 10 mins, covering the prolapse in a mixture of honey, preparation h and triple antibiotic ointment (without painkiller) I have managed a few times to reinsert the prolapse but it continues to come back out. It does appear to be shrinking a little each day BUT she keeps laying I followed advice I found on here and so for 3 days she has been in a bedroom with double curtains. I can just barely see anything when I close the door...I have been giving her total daily of just 1/2 cup of chicken scratch with maybe 3-4 tablespoons of layer mix (I know she needs some protein to heal) about 1 tablespoons of probiotic yogurt, some greens (although she's never been a green fan unlike the others) and of course her water. I turn the light on in that room for only about a total of 45 mins only a day and STILL for the past 3 days she continues to lay I know this prolapse will not stay in unless she stops laying for even 2 days? She's looking extremely happy in her big bedroom and my husband says she likes it so much in here she thinks she can stay as long as she pays her egg rent! Her comb is still bright bright red this morning. Does anyone have any ideas on what else to do to stop her egg production?
