One of my chickens has, after doing some research, a prolapsed oviduct. I immediately separated her from the flock and have her in our house in a nice hay-filled box. It was only prolapsed about an inch or so and she seems to be doing fine. She's been in the house for about 5 days now. I've been keeping mineral oil and Preparation H on the prolapse and it has gone back in except for the very end which is a little larger and rounded. It has gotten kind of dark and harder, sort of like a scab, maybe just not quite that hard. Has anyone encountered anything like this? Could this be a scab? Is that OK? I'm hoping it will fall off and she'll be fine, but I don't know.
I took her to the vet immediately who told me she needed to be wormed and didn't do anything else. I'm SURE that's not the problem. So I'm hoping another chicken enthusiast out there can give me some better advice.
