Hello I am new to raising chickens and just yesterday discovered that one of my chickens has a servere protuding anal. They are 26 weeks old and just started laying about two weeks ago. This just happen to appear over night. I noticed it last night when I was shecking on them in their coop. It looks horrible. I have done the soaking twice now in warm water. the smell is horrible. I am not even sure if she can be helped....hoping she can as she is a favorite of the kids. I am attaching a picture of the area....(WARNING) kinda of gross for those who have a week stomach. this was taken right after I dipped her in warm water. Can anyone please help me.
