    I posted yesterday about my hen's painful egg passing. Nothing is hanging out of her vent, but it is pretty irritated. I have cleaned it up and am applying hemorrhoid cream and Neosporin. She is currently in our basement in a dog crate. Should I allow her to go outside (in my mobile unit) separated from the flock (to avoid more vent pecking) or keep her downstairs?? Thank you!

    Haha - while tending to this chicken - who, by the way, laid another egg today, she pooped out of the hole I thought only eggs came out. With a little research here, I found out poop and eggs share the same exit. What can I say - I'm new here [​IMG]
