Hi all - I've been dealing with a hurt chicken and not paying as much attention to the others! One's had slightly soiled rear feathers and runny poop - but otherwise, had been acting fine. I finally let the hurt chicken out this morning and turned my attention to this other chicken. I looked under the perch where she sits with her buddy and this is what I found - I left her buddy's poop in the pic to compare the two - note the bright green on the left:
Looking at poop pictures elsewhere, I'm worried she might have gotten into some wet seed (since it's been raining so much, so the floor under where I hang their feed got wet - normally it doesn't - and of course, since they spill a lot when they eat, she might have eaten wet seed before I had a chance to clean it up.
Could it be Clostridium perfringens or something else? If it is Clostridium perfringens, and she seems fine except for the poop, does it need to be treated no matter what, or will it resolve? If you think it is - how do I confirm it, and if she needs treatment, any suggestions?
