    My 1 year old barred Rock has what I think is a prolapsed vent. This afternoon I put her in a bath and then used preparation H cream and pushed it back in. I separated her. Just checked on her a few hours later and it is out again. Should I keep pushing it back in? How often?

    Following. Got one here too. Behaving OK, tissue staying put. Observed something that appeared to be vomit in the evening though. Very strange.
