    My BA hen has gone through egg binding vent gleet and now has a prolapsed vent. I don't really know the best treatment, or any. I feel bad for her it looks all bloody. She is eating and drinking fine seem ok but is kinda puffed up and thin and her tails down.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Separate her....clean her up good. Apply honey or hemroid cream to the prolaspe. keep trying to massage it back in place. Keep her in a dark area to help keep her from trying to lay.

    I separated her right after I found it. There wasn't much I could clean so I didn't. And I put honey on it a couple hours ago. It had already gone back in. She hasn't laid since may but she is in a dark place. I hope she is better in the morning.
