    Hej everyone
    I have 4 wyandottir "girls" who for the past 2 months have been treated for cocci due to runny tummy and blood. The breeder I got them from told me they wld be very ill by now if it was a cocci infection and to stop the medicine. They eat seem fit and lively, but the bleeding worries me a lot. As far as I can see its only one or two who have this problem. They are changing their feather just now Has anyone experienced this, if so what should I do.??? I hate the idea of putting them down. best regards morhen (translated from Danish means motherhen)

    I am not an expert on Cocci but my three silkies just stopped their medication for it...they were having bloody stool but it was only at night...they were very ill but became better on the medication...so if you are medicating them they would be getting better...here is a link that shows all kinds of stool pictures that you may find helpful...sorry I could not be more helpful but best of luck with your new ladies!
