    Hello.
    I posted this under a different topic because I thought it may have been food related.....

    I noticed some bloody droppings two days ago and was told by a lady at TCS that it was probably worms. I have 8 hens and 1 rooster so I don't know for sure who it's coming from, though I suspect it's from several of them.

    They are all acting very 'normal'. No other signs of problems at all.

    However, if it's cocci I want to treat it right.

    Should I treat them for worms or cocci? When I look at the symptoms for both diseases they list several factors to look for that I just don't see in my chickens. But I know something is wrong.

    Help!

    usually chickens over the age of 17 weeks have built up their own immunities to cocci.
