    Help guys, is it Coccidiosis?!? Just saw today, the behavior seems to be normal for now.
    Also two of them just start laying, but unfortunately I don't which one is the one that pooped the blood.
    What do I do?!?!

    That looks like mostly blood for sure. It won't hurt to start them all on Corid in the water for 5 days. There is no egg withdrawal with Corid. Give 1 1/2 tsp of the powder per gallon of water for 5-7 days. Afterward, give them all a few days of poultry vitamins in the water, and a little plain probiotic yogurt in their food. Then I would probably worm them with Valbazen or SafeGuard. You could also, if possible, take several fresh droppings in to a local vet to get a fecal float to diagnose coccidia or capillary worms. Enteritis is also a cause sometimes of blood in poop, and can be linked to a previous outbreak of coccidiosis.

    Thank you.
    So should I just give Corid to all chickens?
