Hey, I saw 1 of my pullets do a poo today and there was blood in it, then found another in the hutch from earlier. Is this normal?

Thanks.

It is normal for them to shed some intestinal lining, which looks pretty bloody. Really bloody poo in combination with symptoms like not weanting to eat or drink, lethargy, staying hunched up as if cold would indicate cocci. If they don't seem sick, I'd just watch them. If you start seeing symtoms of cocci, I'd get some Corid from the feed store. Here is how to administer:

Amd here is a poo chart (pics of poop:)
