Henley Reeves, one of my Delaware hens, has a severe prolapsed vent that I'm guessing comes with vent gleet (due to the stink), and I'm not sure what to do next. We've soaked it in epsom salt and applied antibiotic cream (without pain killer). However, when we tried to push the vent back in, Henley kept trying to push it out with an expression of constipation. Therefore, we have been unable to push the vent back in, which I know is the most important part. She's currently been placed in the garage (dark, of course) with a dish of water. I'm going to try and keep the room dark for most of the day in order to prevent her egg-laying. Does anyone have any advice on how I can keep the vent in? We already had a hen die recently due to unsuccessful doctoring so I am really scared to take any risks. Here are some photos: (WARNING-- GRAPHIC) There is also, as you can see, a hard yellow coating around the vent. I saw on another thread that this will soften in a few dies with application of the cream. We have also trimmed the feathers around the vent. What do I do now? The vent won't stay in, and I'm out of ideas. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
