How's her weight? Appetite? Behavior? Occasionally hens will have some blood in their pooh, from laying a larger egg, or from shedding intestinal lining, and it should clear up quickly. Cocci, and worms are another cause of bloody pooh. Both worms, and cocci usually have other symptoms. Keep an eye on her. When was the last time you wormed her?

What did you use to worm her, and how did you use it? It could easily be intestinal lining, which is normal for them to shed from time to time, OR it could be from passing an extra large egg, again that's normal. If she does it again today, and/or tomorrow, please post pics. There is a chance it's cocci, which is treated with Corid, but I wouldn't jump the gun, and treat yet.
