    Hi all,
    If any one can help great. I have a laying hen with a mildly messy bottom and there looks to be a blood blister near her vent. Other wise she looks fine and acts fine. I only noticed because of her fluffy bottom looked a little messy. I can post pictures if needed. Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    So, like looking at a clock. The vent is about 2 inches above my thumb, 12 o'clock. The two blood like blisters are at 4 o'clock and 7 o'clock.
    Her eye's are bright and there is no discharge from her nose, no respiratory symptoms. Seems to be eating and drinking well and still laying large brown eggs.
    I have not noticed a difference in poop, but the run is muddy, soo....
    Thanks for looking!
