    I have just been feeding my chickens and noticed there was a bit of blood in one of there poops not sure which one it was though, is this normal, they are all healthy and eating well and have fresh water and one of the hens is now laying and has only ust started could it be her and due to being new to the egglaying.

    Any help appreciated

    is a link to a pictoral guide to chicken poop. It's gross, so beware.

    But it might help you determine if what you have going on is a problem. If your chickens are old enough to lay, i expect that what you're seeing is just a natural shedding of intestinal lining. Nothing to worry about.
