    Gray yellow poop with black spots, is this cocci? Two of my chickens died having this kind of poo stuck to their vent area. I cut one of them but couldn't see anything, though am not a vet. Just trying to know what's going on.

    Sorry for your loss. Chickens can have many different types of droppings with coccidiosis, many times with blood, but in some strains, it may just be runny with a lot of mucus. When examining the intestines, you will probably see inflammation, bulging, and blood. Here are some links to read and some pictures of droppings with coccidia: http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2012/12/coccidiosis-what-backyard-chicken.html

    37 remained well. My local vet prescribed oxytetracycline. White bacilary dirrhea is what he called it(the poo).
