    I can't see the vent very well in the photo, but it looks like he was pecked in that area. Is it bleeding right now? I would attempt to clean it with warm, soapy water, and then take a closer look.

    I agree. Isolate her from the other birds to prevent any more picking until it is healed.

I pulled some stuff out of it but i dont know. sorry i am typing with one hand the other is holding poor Buff

    Give her bottom a good soak in warm water and wash the area with mild soap that take a few photos and post them. If you live somewhere cold she will have to stay indoors until she is dry. Mine like to be blow dried (and yes, I know, they are spoiled!).

    Can she be separated until she heals?

    It appears that he is constipated, and possibly has had a prolapsed vent recently. I would give him some applesauce, and probiotics or yogurt. Here is a recent thread where they treated with Nystatin, an antifungal medication, that may have similarities: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/768209/poop-plug-yuck

    I don't really have the supplies and room for separating so I would prefer not to. But I will try the others. I actually CAN NOT give them a bath. It is just SO cold here! I live in Utah and there is at least 2 inches of snow. And pet rules for my family is no pets inside.
