My chicken appears to have a prolapse what should I do?

Prolapses can occur secondary to a number of diseases. Exposed tissues are susceptible to trauma and infection so we recommend seeing a vet unless it’s very minor and not persistent. Before visiting the vet it is important to keep the tissues clean and moist. Cannibalistic tendencies of other chickens can lead to pecking of the exposed tissue, so separating her from the flock is important.
