My favorite silky has a prolapsed vent,hard stools with a runny sometimes bloody liquid dripping from her vent. She just laid an egg yet she doesn't seem interested in food or water. Is she a goner or is there hope?

Search for "prolapse". Unfortunately, many members have had experience with this.

Good luck with your hen, and keep us posted.

Sky girl,

Click on "search" on the upper right of the page. (beneath "New Topic" & "Post Reply") All you need to do then is type "prolapse" in the box and click on search. There are a few dozen posts.

Let us know if you're still having difficulty.

Nora,

I even tried today with no luck. I'm very frustrated, indeed.

My girl did not make it...:~( I'd like to know what caused that to happen.

Sad and confused,

sky girl

So sorry that your hen didn't make it.

A prolapse can be caused by a very large egg. Sometimes, if a hen is very young when she starts to lay, a prolapse can result. Excess weight can be a contributing factor as well.

As to your not being able to access the search function, post a question concerning this on the "About The Board" page. Perhaps one of the moderators will be able to help you.
