    Bloody diarrhea, possibly coccidiosis

    I had one brahma cockerel who acted funny one day. He used to be skittish but then he let me pick him up. I thought something wasn't right so I quarantined him. When I went back out there he pooped watery bloody poop. But that's not all, in my main flock no one is acting different but there is...

    Right amount of amprolium?

    I just treated my chickens for coccidiosis and I used 45 mL of amprolium in 5 gallons. The amprolium solution is 9.6% aprolium. I want to make sure it isnt too much before letting them have that water for too long.

    Brown or blue eggs? Red white and blue chick

    I dont have pictures of the chick yet but I will get them tommarow. When this chick hatched it looked like a brown leghorn or welsummer chick (chipmunk pattern) and I assumed that my brown leghorn must have been the mom and the GLW was the dad.

    Plucking breast feathers

    My 1 year old barred rock has been plucking her breast feathers. I have heard that this could be a sign of broodiness but she is showing no other signs. She is laying almost daily and never is protective of her nest. If it could be broodiness how long is it gonna be before she sits on a clutch?
