Chicken with sore bottom, advice needed.

Hiya, ive got a chicken whose bottom is looking red and swollen. Ive checked my other girls and they have loverly clean, obvious vents, this chicken i couldnt see her vent, just red and swollen, any advice would be great. She is an ex batt that weve had since march this year. Seems well in herself still, eating well, bullying my banties as normal.

Chickens are as bad as kids. Me and hubby have just been trying to decide who gets the job of sticking their finger up her bottom.
