    I have found blood in the stool at the bottom of the roost. I am concerned this is a serious issue. It is only in one spot so I am assuming only 1 chicken has the issue at this time. Is this a parasite? If so how do I treat it? Thank you for your help.

    Thank you for the link. I just found droppings in our coop similar to the photo of shed intestinal lining. How have your chickens faired--did you end up having any disease, or still a healthy flock?

    Thanks for the link. I was wondering what was going on with my pullets as well.

    I just lost 4 chickens that presented with one bloody stool. One more had one bloody stool and I treated him with Corrid. So I'm thinking that blood can show up on some stools, not all.
