Long story short, I'm in need of some advice and pointers. My Americana Matilda was mutilated by my Drake. (He is not apart of this home any longer). She is a small chicken and her vent has been torn open. Not a prolapse, but literally torn into. She is doing better, I have kept her in for abut 5 days now and am continuing treatment. Warm baths, spray, and ointments. Tonight I was finally able to remove a part of scab from one of the sides. There is still one section that is slightly black and scabbed. I say black because a part of her tissue looks to be blackend. No obvious smell other than traditional chicken. I can't find information on this anywhere. I had one chicken before this prolapse and I had to euthanize her because I was not aware of what to do and found nothing but negative outcomes. I did find information on it now. Needless to say I researched and researched and now I can't find anything about this or anyone having a simliar experience. Her vent muscle on top is still "alive" might I say. The muscle is still able to move but looks to have little control of it. The only way I can really describe it is that the eyelid of our eye has ripped apart on one side. She hasnt layed an egg but she doesnt lay often so I am unaware if she can still lay. These are my serious questions. What is the black skin represented of? Infection? Something else? Can she live with a torn vent? Any other info will help. Thank you!!!
