    My girls are about 5.5 months old. I have 5 of them. They just started laying eggs a week or so ago.

    Yesterday I noticed this from one of them ( Red Sex Pullet ?? ). There is a white discarge constantly leaking from her rear end.....

    Looks like a prolapsed vent. There are tons of threads on how to deal with it. Do a search, you'll find some good information and how things went with the chickens afterwards.

    Definitely clean that butt!

    She needs to be cleaned up/given a bath no matter what it is.

    Could she have a prolapsed vent? From the photo it looks as though her vent is protruding. It's hard to tell with that pic. Poor baby!
