    Anyone ever have to treat vent gleek? If so, how did you go about it? Thanks.

    Thanks...I've been checking it out all morning! I have a hen that her vent was all wet and yucky...I washed her area and she looks better this morning. I think seeing the vent gleek on here jinxed me?? :( There is no smell so I guess thats a plus...I just don't know?? She is fine with the others, nobody bothering her. I'm keeping a close eye on her. Maybe she needs yogart? I'm still reading. Jen:)

    @Jen---The treatment that was brought to my attention and WORKED was using a bowl large enough to soak the butt of said hen for about 5 min in warm water with Epsom salt (hand full) in it. Also using a syringe I feed her around 1tbs of the water/Epsom mixture. It took 3 days for it to work. The last day I also feed her sugar water with Nutri-drinch mixed together. Today she is good to go.

    First it is not vent gleek, its vent gleet. With a "t"

    Vent gleet is a fungal infection their is drainage and a nasty smell.

    Lisav, your bird sounds like its in serious trouble. It would be best if you start your own topic and give as much information as possible. That white you saw is urine, and if its all white then she's had very little to eat.

    I recently had a hen with vent gleet. And I'm so happy she is better now. Is your hen getting water, usually they will get huddled in some corner. So you should syringe feed her water. When doing this, make sure to point the syringe down the chickens right side, if it goes down the left she could drown. Also, I fed my girl yogurt, plain of course. She got better in 1 week, and I'm so relieved. One more thing you could do is to put apple cider vinegar in your flocks water. This cleans out unwanted bacteria, so it will keep the rest of your flock healthy as well. I hope she gets better, and I hope this helped.
