One of the most important things is that the prolapsed tissue is kept moist, I have a hen that prolapsed last year and the vet gave me a sterile lubricant called Surgilube to put on the prolapsed tissue if it happened again in off hours, maybe you can get that at a pharmacy. What caused the prolapse, is she a chronic egg layer?

So we took her to a specialist, and they were able to remove the egg, and fix the prolapse. We are in no way out of the woods yet, but it's a start. We need all the prayers we can get right now. Vet said there another egg on deck, so we could be here again.
Glad to hear you were able to get it taken care of, did the vet mention giving her Lupron shots? My hen that prolapsed ended up getting Lupron and she was permanently moved away from all the other birds to another part of the house to try and stop the chronic egg laying, so far it has worked and it's been a year and 4 months since her prolapse. She is now allowed to live with one other female.

Lupron works at the hormone level and it is usually given in 3 injections each 12-14 days apart to be effective in shutting down the hormonal cycle. How did the vet determine there was another egg there, was an x-ray done? It has been my experience that when a hen is in an egg laying cycle she lays every 48 hours.

UPDATE:
So we took her back to the vet, and vet said she looked so much better, and that is very possible that she just re absorbed the egg. Unfortunately we're not quite out of the woods yet. She's acting...off. She's tired, which could be the needs, but might not be. And her peeps sound off too. Like just not as loud. We still need your prayers and positive vibes sent her way, as she's just not up to what she was. Any advice would be appreciated too.
What meds is she still on and for how long more? If she does not return to her normal self I would talk to the vet about doing an x-ray.
