The Chicken Chronicles: Prolapsed Vent

Oh, it is a glamorous life I live here in the mountains.  Somedays I miss our old house and the HOA that would have never allowed chickens.

Goose is sick.  You may remember she is our little adopted hen from an elementary school hatch that lead to us spending $1,500 on a new coop, a new yard and new hens after she could not be successfully integrated into our existing flock.  Now a year later after being a happy little egg producing girl, she has a prolapse issue.

Typical me, I brought her in for a warm bath and then started researching.  I found this very helpful Chicken Rx site.  I'm on my way out the door with gloved hands, the honey, sterile pads and bandage.  Wish me luck.
