Found a silkie hen yesterday(Early April baby) who I thought prolapsed, when I flipped her over I notice she had an egg, that was still in the "membrane" but was on the outside of her. Never saw this one before... Took her up the house, put her in some warm water and after about 15 minutes of soaking the egg released. She then left me with a prolapse. I did what I've done in the past with chinchillas that prolapse... I used both sugar water, and honey to try and get the prolapse to shrink and stay in. Ended up pushing it in 3 times, but every time she'd move it would come back out. We held her for a good 20 minutes in hopes that it would "stick" but as soon as she moved, out it came. Put in one last time, put her in a towel in a small cat carrier and left her for the night... Any one actually have good results with keeping a prolapse from reoccurring? I'm thinking when she goes to lay another egg it will just do it again, anyway. I was thinking about putting in a stitch, but i'm not sure how that will go if she does need to lay another egg... Would it be best just to put her down? Hate to say it but the few times with the chins that I had to deal with prolapse (intestinal) they ended up needing to be put down, as I couldn't get the intestines to stay in..so I don't look at prolapses with much hope these days.
