    I really was not sure whether to post this in a chicken health section or games and jokes, as it was framed in a funny way. Don't want it to get in the way of a real emergency post!

    Anyone who has ever had to deal with a prolapsed vent will sympathize with what this couple went through:

    I know honey is an old-timey cure for vent prolapse, but I personally keep Prep-H around for this contingency. Can't imagine the bugs the sweet stuff would attract!

    Thanks for sharing.
