    Chickens need warmth, protection from larger birds/predators. Good clean water and good feed and the company of the rest of the chickens out of the incubator.

    Hi Debbie

    Have a look at the Health and Welfare Forum rather than this one, there is lots of advise about what to do with a prolapse.
    One of my girls has just had one that, fingers crossed, seems to be getting better.
    You need to keep it clean and moist with some antibacterial ointment and gently push it back in if you can, at least this is what you do with an adult bird. I've been giving my girl soluble asprin in her water to help with the swelling. Add a post on the other forum as I said and someone with experience with chicks will answer you.

    Good luck

    Daisy
