    I've got a young Americana chick with a swollen vent and a laceration with slight bleeding on the cloaca. I cleared away all the feces, she had no problem pooping on me while i was cleaning her. It defiantly hurts her. Ive put neosporin on it. Not sure if i should use preparation H on it or not.

    Either is fine. Just keep it lubed so hopefully it will go back in. (It looks like there is a little bit of prolapse there.) I've also read that honey helps prolapse.
