    I have a turkey that is 2 yrs. old and this morning her vent is hanging out, she has been acting broody for about two weeks. I have her in the bath tub and I washed her up and then put Prep. H on her bum. I have tried to push it back in now 3 times and it keeps coming back out. She has what looks like egg whites oozing out but I don't feel any egg or any sort of shell. Can anybody give me some advice on this, how long do I keep trying? Maybe she is to old to try to save? But I got to tell you I love this turkey! She does not seem to be in much pain and tries to sleep as long as I'm with her/ holding her bum. Any help would be very appreciated!!!
