    This morning I came out to check on the birds and throw them some oats.....Sam..a Lacewing?? Didn't respond. She just sat there, eyes closed, didn't run from me as usual. I then noticed several piles of bloody stool that would have come for more than one bird...yet al the other birds are acting normal..except for Sam. The stool looks to have a "tissue-y" look about it. Normal stool mixed with "blobs" of bloody tissue.

    Our birds are approximately 8 months old and "freerange" in our yard. I recently opened up a new area to them where I used to keep a couple of my dogs so very likely they could have eaten or been exposed to dog feces. It never occurred to me that that could be a problem. Can someone please help??
    We are about to clean and bleach the waterer and add some ACV to it.

    Sounds like coccidiosis. Get some corrid or sulmet and treat the entire flock.
