    Please tell me what we are doing wrong!

    We cleaned his butt. Soaked his bottom in warm water. We used petr. jelly and rubbed it in the area and tried to press it back in but the only thing that happened is a little blood came out. We soaked again and he seemed relieved with the rubbing and he hates the water.

    But it is still out!

    What do we do?

    Can we use preparation H.

    Thank you.

    EDIT" SHE IS NOW COUGHING UP WATER AND THERE APPEARS TO BE A WHITE BLISTER ON HER BOTTOM WHERE IT IS HANGING OUT! OH HELP PLEASE!

    Yeah, if this is a HE, then i'm at a loss. If we're talking about a girl, then you have to keep trying with Preparation H. also, put her in a dark place so she won't want to produce any more eggs until she is all back to normal again.

    how old is it? Is it pooing normally? I had a chick about a week old that had an impaction with small prolapse. I soaked and squirted mineral oil in both ends(dribbled on beak) and used prep h to shrink it. moistened the food and added unsweetened applesauce. Gently scooped out hard poo. He is now 5 weeks old and cute as can be, and definitely a he.

    Huh??

    Please confirm gender and age of your chicken. . .

    Breed?

    Is he/she eating/drinking? What do you feed?

    Could others be pecking the bottom? Are you sure it's a prolapse?

    Can you provide pics?

    Wow! Being we have a male dragon, male cats, male dogs it was easy to call a new chick HE SORRY!

    I viewed other pictures of the same condition and it looks exactly the same which is how we know what it is!

    And HE is only 4-5 weeks old. He (oops did it again!) SHE eats the baby chick feed, which was advised, lettuce and an occasional cricket that are bought from the pet store. Lettuce is organic and I know that because I grew it.

    Sorry for the mishape! We are going to take him with another chick that has a slipped tendon to a vet today that said he would take care of them and show us how to do it properly for future use! Thank you GOD! I feel so bad for my new babies!

    Have a grand day!

    Thank you hertiage and thank you jenni I really appreciate your help! Sincerely, I really do! And I'm sure they will both be fine! At least I really pray so.

    Yes you can use Prep H, the plain version, and also dust sugar inside as you apply the ointment. Sugar feeds the cells and promotes healing. You may have to repeat this many times until the inflammation subsides and the inner membranes stay inside. Keep an eye on this bird long-term and be prepared to repeat as needed. It could be a simple thing and get over with, fast, or not. The Prep H is an anti-inflammatory and is designed to shrink tissues so they can return to their original position.

    Also consider offering feed dampened with water and a little molasses to keep the material in the gut soft. If the bird is not eating due to lonliness, the feed can be softened further and fed by dropper. Might be good to keep the chick alongside others but not close enough to be pecked.

    Vitamins in the water would not be amiss either, and will assist this bird during recovery.

    Did this chick have any other problems- odd droppings, straining, that kind of thing? What is her age? type?
