Funky poop *WARNING GRAFIC PICS*

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've been finding this poop for a week now. Just one or two at first but these were all from this morning. The red seems like intestinal lining not blood, as its stringy not bloody. I started treating for worms. Is it worms or something else? Coci maybe?

Yep, could really be coccidia,,,,Got it even on one of my adult hen this year. I had to treat several times...Best, would be to do a fecal test, if you've got a vet that does it.

In my flock these poops are never normal. Best to have a fecal done, but if you can't do that, you might want to think about de-worming with Valbazen or Safeguard and treating for coccidiosis with Corid.

Unfortunately I don't have a vet who will do a test for me. I'll continue treating for worms and treat for coccidiosis. What is the dosage for corid? My local store only carries the powder

20% powder dose is 1.5 teaspoons per gallon for 5 days, then 1/3 teaspoon per gallon for 7 days. Okay to give Safeguard and Corid at the same time. Safeguard dose I use is 0.23ml per pound for five days.

Thanks so much for all your help! I will start dosing tomorrow. Hopefully it's early and they won't show any more symptoms. So far it's just the poop. They act like nothing's wrong
