    I have read about blood in the chicken poop could be a sign of cocci. I am not sure if this would be that but I found what appeared to be one spot under my roost this morning. It was all red and very runny. No solid in it at all. My chickens are 19 weeks old and all are very alert and active. I looked in the run and coop and found no other blood. I am not sure what cocci looks like. Does anybody with more knowledge than me know if this is what it looks like. All the other droppings look normal. Thanks in advance

    Apologies that I am inexperienced when it comes to Cocci but as no-one has replied yet, hopefully my responding will bump your post up the ranking a little.

    Anyways, I know it might be gross, but any chance you have a picture of the suspect spot/poop?

    Also, this poop chart may be of assistance:
