RIR with white drainage coming from behind! Need advice.

Hi, new here!

I have a hen that is having drainage out of her bottom.
It is white in color and seems like a red bulging area around her bottom as well. No blood though, and I don't see any bloody poops anywhere?? I am new to raising hens and just noticed this today. Any one have a clue?

anytime my RIR lays, she has what looks to be a chalky white sustance coming from her vent and down her fluffy butt. She has never been eggbound and I just assciate it to extra calcium coming out when she pushes egg out-did yours just lay an egg?
Have you searched the site for "prolapse"? What you are describing -- the red bulging area and the white discharge -- sure matches what I have seen in the pictures of prolapse on the site.

Thanks for everyones help!

I don't know what eggbound means? I will look up prolapse!
