a couple of my chickens have had runny poop but today one is bleeding and there is a fair amount of bloody bedding. It is bright red. she has also either pulled or lost a lot of her feathers around her butt. I don't feel any stuck egg. Do you think they have Coccidiosis? Just the one has blood 2 others are runny poop and the other 3 are fine. They are eating crumble/oyster shell/ treats like yogurt rice cooked eggs. what should I do?

thanks

Not sure what the problem is, but you better get that bleeding one away from the other birds. They will really go after her, when they notice it. I would cut back on the treats a little and stick to your feed. They may have had too much of something- giving them runny poo. Get her confined and take a close examination. Pics would be good. Good luck!!

Sounds like the others are pecking at it and causing the bleeding. IF that is the case, remove her quick or they will kill her. Do you have a pic you can post to let us see what you are describing?

I gave her a warm bath and now she is wrapped in a nice warm towel in the house. She does seem like she is trying to push but I can't feel any egg anywhere. Did you end up losing your gal as well? I feel so bad for her and she is such a beautiful bantam golden laced polish and so sweet!!!!
