    Its Not A Blow Out, Its A Prolapsed Vent. Commonly Seen When Birds Are Stressed At Point Of Lay Or When They Are Dehydrated And Having Trouble Moving The Eggs Thru The Ovaduct

    JJ, you have no idea how proud I am of you that your response had nothing to do with inner tubes or tire patches. But I know ya wanted to.

    IT HAPPENS THIS TIME OF YEAR... TEMPS CREEP UP FAST AND THEY ARENT NECESSARILY USED TO THEM YET... WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A BIRD... AND A GAMEBIRD AT THAT... NOT LIKELY TO SEE ANY WEARING A NASA UNIFORM [​IMG]

    YOU CAN TRY ADDING VITAMIN AND ELECTROLYTES TO THE WATER THAT SHOULD STIMULATE THEM TO DRINK MORE.. BUT BASICALLY YEAH ITS SELF INFLICTED AND ALL YOU CAN DO IS TRY [​IMG]
