    Hello All,

    I go outside to my coop to lock up my girls for the night and notice one of them has blood in their vent. I watched her and the poop came out fine, normal, no blood. But this wont go away. I dont know if its part of her vent. Help please. Shes almost one and shes a road island red and its march 19th just getting over winter in New Jersey. She lost all her butt feathers. What can this be? Help! Panicking!!!

    Thank You So Much!

    That looks like a badly prolapsed vent! Irrigate with 50/50 or so betadine, cover with vasaline. Then with gloved, lubed fingers, try to gently push it back in. Keep her away from flock. Keep her in dimly lit cage to discourage laying. Feed soft protein foods so poop passes easily. Keep her well hydrated. Every time it comes back out, put it back in. Hope she recovers!

    Since the prolapse is supposed to be internal, you don't want to burn the tissue. Mix up some salt water if it's all you have. If prolapsed tissue dries out, it will cause irreparable damage so do this quickly!
    As other poster said, after prolapse tissue is back in place, hemorrhoid cream on/in the vent can help.

    She is good. It stayed in her all night. I had to put it back in around 1 this afternoon. She seems to be fine. Do you know how long this may last? Thanks for checking in, it means a lot.

    To be more specific, how long until it reattaches. If that's what it does. Basically i'm jut wondering how long until she can go back with the flock.
