Hi everyone, I have been wanting to ask this and just getting around to it. A little nervous because I see alot about ciocci and it appears to be so deadly. I clean poop off of bars/shelves every morning and I do notice on occasion some sloppy poo with blood in it. This has gone on for quite some time and I always thought maybe it was the heat. Thankfully no one appears to be sick and I have not lost any chicks to sickness in quite some time. I now have 31 chickens in the hen house (12x12) and I could never narrow down to who had the messy poo. They all get out to roam the yard about noon time, after ladies have layed, and following them around all day would be difficult. How do you know if it is something serious BEFORE anyone dies? Are there any other signs? Can you treat all? Will I then loose all of my eggs? We have had chicks for about three years and only had two that died of sickness unknown to us. Both sort of lethargic and not eating/drinking. We just put them down and ended their misery. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!
