Hi everyone, I'm currently house sitting for my boss, caring for a flock of approx. 60 chanteclers. There is a mix of older hens and this summer's generation of young hens just beginning to lay. One of the hens had a frozen white mass hanging from her back end yesterday so I removed it but discovered the her vent was distended, caked with blood and droppings. Since it was below freezing I thought perhaps isolating her in our heated farm kitchen might help her pass the obstruction which I then thought might be an egg she couldn't pass. This morning I cleaned her up with a cloth and warm water, which allowed me to see that she was not holding an egg but instead has some distended tissue, about the size of a hazelnut, coming out of the vent. There is also opaque, watery white discharge present. I don't know if this is relevant but her vocalizations are a little raspy, and apart from the vent she appears perky and normal. I posted a picture please refer to it as well Can anyone tell me what is going on here? Is it treatable (realistically)? If not, should I wait for her to die of natural causes or limit her suffering with a knife?
