    I hope someone can help me soon. I went out this morning to take care of the birds, while looking for eggs I found a few really dark
    almost black looking poops!! Then I found one that was kinda loose and bloody looking. My girls are 18-20 weeks old now and we
    found our first egg yesterday. I have 3 EE 2 cherry eggers and 2 barred rocks. While doing other chores outside I could hear a hen still in the coop Bawking like crazy. I thought for sure I was getting another egg.
    So could this be due to them just staring laying or do I need to run out and get some Corid. ( wouldn't hurt to have on hand from what I have read today)

    If it were me, I would get some Corid and treat your hens for Coccidiosis. I don't think that the first egg has anything to do with them becoming ill. The Corid liquid dosage is 1/2 teaspoon per quart of drinking water for 5-7 days, and the Corid 20% powder dosage is 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of drinking water for 5-7 days. Don't mix anything else into the drinking water during the treatment time.

    If you get the Corid powder, I would suggest using no less than 3/4 of a teaspoon. I'm still working on the math, but I do believe that 1/2 teaspoon is not enough.

    The amounts listed below are for the .012% moderate outbreak dose.
