    Severly underweight - please help! Cocci / diarrhea

    It's been quite a journey with Nani (2 years old rhode island red hen) - it's been about 2.5 weeks of lethargy, no-low appetite, sleepiness, etc. Her poops looked normal in the beginning so I didn't believe it was coccidiosis (I now know that blood doesn't always show in this case) but I wanted...

    Chickens in flock, poop white and watery

    It's been a while since I have posted, which is usually a good thing because it means nothing is wrong. Today, though, I noticed my chicken coop had white milky puddles of poop instead of droppings. There were some droppings, but enough puddles that multiple birds are doing it, and of multiple...

    Seems egg bound, smells dreadful, plus blood and maybe maggots, but she's still perky

    I've spent the past couple days googling chicken ailments nonstop, and I'm completely overwhelmed. I don't know whether I have several different things going on at once, or what. I've been keeping chickens for a few years - they're not exactly pets, but I'm fond of them and want to do right by...

    At my wits end, lots of different illness symptoms in my flock.

    I’ll start off by admitting, I was sloppy about quarantining new birds from my old ones. I brought home three new silkies from a poultry swap a few weeks ago (one adult hen, one pullet, and a young roo that I THOUGHT was a pullet :rolleyes: it’s so hard to tell with silkies.) I threw them in...
