Today I noticed that one of my Barred Rock hens has a terrible issue with her bottom! I thought it was a hemorrhoid, took her away fr the flock, washed her butt and examined it. My hens are all free range and this must have happened some time ago because it is red and inflamed and there is necrotic tissue around what looks like a ruptured abscess protruding fr her vent. She is acting normal, eating and drinking, but I'm worried about her getting an infection as there were tiny maggots eating the dead tissue. I now have her in a clean, dry isolation cage but I'm wondering if I should cut away the dead tissue and hope she heals on her own. Anyone have any suggestions?
