Yes High Energy feed do cause prolapse in young flock. The best way to control this is to feed the birds abt 10grams below standard, this has been done in my over years and has really helped. The production is not affected. Also the birds shd be fed during cooler hrs of the day.

Feed allotments, bodyweight and egg production are 3 factors to be considered in flocks with prolapse.
