Hi,
Linda has rung me and sent me pictures of what sounded like a prolapse in a young pullet.

this is only second egg. the first was the same

Linda has read the prolapse files in sticky and is not certain it's a prolapse.

Linda's words accompanying photos are:
"that is an egg in that. she is slightly supporting the egg. when she got out of the pen it protrudes more. i had a egg squeezed out two days ago and her bottom looks like she has a haemorhoid there which i pushed back in"

can anyone help linda?

cheers
caladenia.

Wow, that looks painful. The poor thing. I'd be popping her in a warm sitz bath with the hope that will help her pass the egg. Or at least soothe the area a bit. You'd have to consider that if this is the second time it's happened and may well be an ongoing problem, in which case you'd want to think about her options.

Sorry, can't really help. I hope a solution can be found.

Id put some hemorrhoid cream on it to reduce the swelling which might help the egg pass. It looks nasty and I think she may not have a long life.

Hmm. I agree with all comments above. If she can lay then ultimately an egg will break and she will develop Egg Yolk Peritonitis. Help her with a warm bath while she is trying to lay but you cant do it for 200 plus days a year for however she lives.

Hopefully the prolapse will stop happening but she is not starting well.
