    Coccidiosis or shedding lining

    One of our 4 week old easter eggers had a bloody looking poop this morning. I noticed one other spot in the brooder. They were supposed to be vaccinated per the breeder. Does this look like Coccidiosis or intestinal lining?

However, if their immune system is lowered due...

    Approx. 2-3 week old chicks (4 Barred Rock Plymouths) with blood in stool; lining or coccidiosis?

    Title says it all. Last night I discovered some red in their droppings. And today, they have had a bit runny stool and the red is still there (even if it's only a little). I can't imagine how they would have gotten coccidiosis if that's what it is, since I've been practicing good biosecurity...

    I have not lost anymore hens after making these changes

    All 6 hens from my first year died 4 from egg yolk peritonitis. Chicken ownership was tough on my chickens physically and me emotionally the first year as I lost chicken after chicken.

    Quail not feeling well - PLEASE READ

    My 3 mo. old pet California quail, Gumdrop, is usually very vivacious. Just today I noticed signs that he wasn't feeling himself like being fluffed out, not nearly as active or talkative, hunkered down, and closing his eyes. He had no signs of being sick yesterday (making his calling noise...

    If its not Mareks, what could it be?

    After my first 2 deaths this spring, I've had necropsy's done. Each came back with tumor growths and 'most possibly Mareks'. I had PCR tests done for Mareks & ALV. Both came back negative. I know I've had coccidiosis several times this year, I can't seem to shake it. But I've lost as many young...

    Coccidiosis in quail?

    Okay wise quail folks…can Coturnix get coccidiosis? I’m assuming yes? Is there something else that causes bloody poo? I found one tonight and I’m assuming that’s what it is? First time I’ve seen bloody poop. TIA!

    Feeding a recovering hen from a bad case of coccidiosis

    My hen was diagnosed with coccidiosis last Tuesday from a vet who only found a few possible nematode eggs but was also convinced she was very sick from coccidiosis even though he could find any in the fecal exam provided. Since then she is now walking and drinking on her own, we saw drastic...
