Whew!....I was worried about you both all day. Thank you for the update :)

I am glad she is in good hands. She will be weak for a few days. I have experienced this 3 times in varying degrees. The one thing I did learn (and you might ask you vet to do) is that when there is any exposed tissues returned to the body, normally they put the hen on Baytril. It is not enough, and may not be completely effective. She will also need to be on pipercillin which is in injectable form. And it is also a good antibiotic especially if an infection in the oviducvt was the underlying cause.

Also, yolks form in the follicles of the ovary in sequence, so there may be more yolks for eggs forming. At this time she may be at risk of a yolk going into the abdominal cavity. In the worst case scenario if the yolk circulates into the blood stream there is risk of it going into the brain and causing a stroke. To safeguard this I have learned that aspirin (1 baby aspirin dissolved in 1 pint of water) in the drinking water helps to thin the blood and reduce the risks of this. So this is something else to ask the vet about.

As to the tissues that the vet would have put back inside her. Surprisingly the body shifts them into the proper order. I have never had this hinder a hen from future laying.

She is a beautiful Whiteface, and I hope she recovers quickly :)

May I keep one of your pix's to have on hand for a visual reference for anyone in the future that might have this problem? I have a couple prolapsed pix's but they are not as clear as yours. If so, I would like to add: Permission given by (need your name)

I am SO glad to hear this! It seemed so hopeless last night that I didn't think there was much chance for a happy ending but it looks like maybe everything will turn out OK after all. Thank you so much for stepping up and doing what you had to do to get medical care for her. I hope it's all smooth sailing from this point forward.

I know this is not my thread but I just wanted to say this... Thank you for being on this forum Srtiels!! :D It was really mind blowing to me how with just a little information, your mind and experience went right down to what the actually problem ended up being. If you had not led the charge for pushing on the severity of this, there could have been such a saddening outcome for this little one. So THANK YOU!! :)

((((HUGS)))) I am so sorry for your loss. Your Zoe sounds like my lutino girl named Trouble...I lost her the same way in 1995, and it still hurts to remember her.

Thanks for the use of your pix's. Your thread has encouraged me to do up alot of illustrations and to write a couple articles on female reproductive problems, causes and how to prevent them.

What happened to Zoe can happen to any mature hen regardless of age. Also the incidence can be higher with first time layers than other hens.

-------------------

Please don't....I feel just as sad and responsible because there was some words in your first posting that let me know there was a serious problem and I should have insisted for more info/pix. Still it may not have saved her. Stress and trauma can be very deliberating to out little feathered friends.

I'm so sorry that things turned out this way - we all wanted you and Zoe to have a happy ending. You did what seemed best to you at the time, and often there's no way to know in advance that what we should have done was something different than what we actually did. She had a very serious condition and there's no way to know whether taking her to the vet sooner would have made a difference in the outcome. Take comfort from your memories of the happy times, and know that she loved you until the end.
