I found blood in the stool from one of my chickens. Not sure which one it is. Is this something to be concerned about? I have three hens. One is currently molting so she has not been laying. All of them are still eating, drinking and acting normal.

If it's a one time thing, or very occasionally, then probably not a worry. If you start seeing it a lot then it could be something. Do you have a vet that will do a fecal float test for you? That will ID any parasites. Unfortunately the Florida climate is prime for internal parasites, so getting the test done if at all possible is what I would recommend. In my flock, when I start to see shed lining it's an indication of roundworm infection, which I have to treat regularly for.
