    I have a Polish crested rooster that has been behaving completely normal,'
    except for the drop of blood he passed after passing a completely normal poo.
    I dont think its coccidiosis because of his normal behavior and (besides the blood) completely normal poo.
    Im very confused please help!

    Hmmmmmm. I dont know why its just a drop evry know and then. I would treat him though. Corid 9.6% liquid solution. The dosage is 9.5cc to a gallon of water for five days. You do need to make a fresh batch every day.

    Before you treat, make sure that what you're seeing isn't just intestinal lining! Here's a photo of it (though you can google for more):

    Wouldn't hurt to worm him if you haven't done it recently.

    It's shed intestinal lining. I agree with Casportpony, it wouldnt hurt to worm your birds if you havnt already done so.
