We have nine 4 month old Leghorn hens and I noticed yesterday while changing their water, that there was dark blood on the waterer in 2 places. Today when we cleaned out the coop we saw some caramel colored diarrhea, and more traces of blood only the blood seemed a little lighter in color (more watery). We're new to chickens, we've only had them a month and a half. They aren't acting sick, and we can't figure out which one/s are eliminating the blood. We did have a dead chicken a week ago, and have no idea what caused it's demise. We've been feeding them layer feed, but I went and got a bag of chick food to get the antibiotics in case they are sick. I've also started feeding them garlic which they love. The guy at the feed store thought maybe they were just getting ready to lay and that's why we are seeing traces of blood. I talked to him before we saw the caramel like stools that we saw today. I was hoping someone that knows a bit more about chickens could give me some advice. Edited to add: they are really only around 14 weeks old. I forgot when it was that we bought them as 10 week pullets and thought they were older then they are.
