Have researched and can't find anything similar. Would love thoughts/suggestions. 18 month old Ameraucana. Presented with constipation about a month ago. After soaking, I gently pulled the blockage out and returned her to flock after 2 days figuring out problem. Two weeks later, discovered vent swollen again. Brought her in and tried same remedy. Found another blockage and eventually was able to remove it. (With each removal, hen seemed to become much brighter, although throughout both ordeals she has kept eating, drinking and acting more or less normal.) This time kept her inside for 3 days feeding yogurt, ACV in water, flax seed for fiber.Treated with hemorrhoid ointment in hopes of reducing swelling. Finally decided she needed to be with flock and put her out. Her vent is swollen about the size of a large marble. She is now finally pooping normally--normal amount and normal size. (She has kept pooping throughout this, but her poops had gotten small like earthworms.) I am still treating with hemorrhoid ointment topically but it doesn't seem to be reducing swelling. Something on the inside must still be swollen. No tissue is presenting outside the vent and what I can see on the inside looks healthy and pink. I am worried that the longer this continues, the more jeopardy she is in. She hasn't laid since molting, but none of mine have resumed so that's not a worry. She is not egg-bound, she does not have vent fleet, this is not a case of prolapse--I found good explanations of all those things and photos while trying to figure this out. This is my first flock so I don't have a lot of experience and I really want to do right by my girl. Any help would be greatly welcome!
