    sorry for the awful picture. Im not sure if this is the start of a vent prolapse? I was out of town for a month and the neighbor had been taking care of my small flock (4 birds). . . he said that there had been a large egg with some blood on it, but that it only happened once. Today she laid an egg that came along with some blood also. . . Since i've been home i notice the other girls picking on this one, and then i find this upon closer inspection. Obviously i will separate her from the flock, (for how long?)....and get her cleaned up. . . as far as diagnosis and treatment goes, i'm a little stumped. Was thinking neosporin and preparation H if this is indeed a prolapse, or the start of one. . i'm thinking its not vent gleet, but i only examined her for about 5 minutes before i came to the ol google machine. . . . any help, as quickly as possible, would be so much appreciated.

    thank you in advance.

    If she does have a prolapsed vent this video will show you how to fix it.

    its not nearly as bad as in the video, i think it may be the start. the pic comes through on my chrome browser. she just got a bath with mild soap, and then a soak with epsom, dried her off gently and applied prep H and neosporin. if the pic does come through, the left side that looks like dried blood looks much better, but it is a big giant scab. I think she was getting picked on pretty badly.
