    Sounds like she could have Cocci.
    Sulmet can help take care of it.

    How old is she?
    Is she on medicated starter, if she's a chick?

    Yes, the others can get it.

    Is Sulmet found in medicated chick feed? If not, is it available at most farm stores?

    Quote:It is too late to isolate. Once the stools turn to solid blood, you can rest assured the entire coop has it. Treat all of them asap. Blood is a sign of intestinal damage, so prompt treatment is a must or your bird will bleed out and become severely anemic and pass on. Get the Sulmet and treat as directed in their drinking water..really easy. Let us know if you have any more questions. I hope they make a speedy recovery.

    If you want to go all natural, a good natural antibiotic is D-Mannose. Get the powder (available at natural health food stores, like Super Supplements), and put it in the drinking water. It will clear up pretty quickly... we find it clears up in about 3-4 days....

    If the chicken area is not kept clean, this stuff shows up pretty quickly and often, and in all of the chicks/chickens....

    Hope this helps... [​IMG]

    Quote:...the above will not help treat cocci in this stage ...please get the appropriate med at your feed store and treat your entire brooder flock immediately. Use of probiotic and prebiotic (D-mannose) can help control pathogenic bacteria as a result of the intestinal damage caused by the cocci (and also in preventing it)see here:

    Thank you tiki244. I am looking online @ Tractor Supply. I see something called Aureomycin soluble powder. Is that it? What I see for Sulmer is for Swine only. I want to make sure I get te right stuff since I am seeing some blood in my coop just yesterday.
