Arghh Now my chicken has prolapse!

Post  hennypenny on Fri Mar 21, 2014 1:00 pm

Not having a good day with chicks, as well as trying to fight lice, now one of my chickens has a prolapse. Tried to gently push it back in using lubricant, as advised on other website but no luck, plus she was really distressed. Anyone have any experience?

Hi Hennypenny,

I haven't come across this problem myself, but here's what I've read about it:

First of all, isolation! You don't want the other hens to peck at her backside to "help" her getting rid of this thing hanging there...

Well, it would be ideal if you could take the hen to a vet who knows a bit about hens, and who'd be able to reposition the organs properly. If really you can't find one, try again with a sterile glove and some desinfectant. After that, apply and bit of cream for hemorrhoids if you can.

Check that your hen doesn't have any worms that could have caused this prolapse.

You need to give time to your hen to recover by delaying the next egg to be laid. For that, it'd be great if you could reduce the time of day light she has (dark room or box?) and feed her food that has less proteins.

I hope this helps! Please keep us informed Smile

Can you believe it 1 1/2 weeks after chicken prolapsed - it has gone in on its own and she is back with the flock - I am so pleased. Lots of advice was put her to sleep, but a little patience and belief and she's better. Makes me think of all the poor chicks that are put to sleep unnecessarily.


Thanks for support XX
 Very Happy
