    Red, bleeding, scabby, prolapsed bum!
    I'll try and make it short- a week ago I had one of my girls put down, she was an ex battery hen, old and took her to the vets and got told she has an ulcerated bum and a prolapse, got put on 3 lots of medication and didn't improve so got told to get her out down. Gone out to see my girls this morning and one has got the same thing but worse, I don't understand how this is happening, she is healthy, possibly an egg layer and not that old.. I'm shocked and I don't know what to do, please help

    The picture is of the one that died [​IMG]

    Post helps loads, I've gone out and got most bits for it. She's hard to catch so she is separated and will get bathed in the morning followed by treatment

    Hi there
    Hope someone can help, I have a chicken who has had a runny tummy for quite some time, she eats and drink lots of water every day but have stopped laying, then today I found in her poo a pinkish flat worm looking thing, I am enclosing a picture, does anyone know what it is and how to get rid of it if there is any more inside her?[​IMG]

    I can't tell you what type if worm it is as I'm new to this, but a wormer called "flubenvet" will get rid of the majority of worms
