Your hen is likely being cannabalized by other hens. I need to see just what part of her back end is bloody and swollen, however. A vent prolapse and vent gleet are considerations as well. Can you upload a photo(s) of her back end to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see the icon) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/
