    My RIR is 23 weeks old. 2 days ago I noticed her butt was all bloody. My neighbor came over we check her out and believe she couldn't get her egg out. So I seperated her from the others gave her a nice warm place. Yesterday she had a ton of white stuff coming out. Again my neighbor came over to help. We used a bit of oil to lube the egg and out it came. She is still not acting her self and still has a bit of white stuff coming out. Looking for ideas of what else may be going on and what I should do next.

    Of course a vet would be best. Some on here would give an antibiotic, I don't know which one, though I probably wouldn't. I would keep her in a darkened place for a couple more days to let her rest and heal, and discourage egg laying. Sometimes a warm bath will relax them, too.
