Has anyone experienced this (see photo)? I was especially hoping Dawg 53 would chime in too. cause I follow his advice on most things I read up on but would like to see what everyone else thinks too, if they have an opinion or knowledge that will help. This Lil pullet was hatched back in late July or early August. She had a twin who died and I managed to bring her in the house to work on her and keep her out of the weather and observe her poo. She's been in the house about 2 months now. She's been treated for cocci w/Toltrazural been treated for worms in the proper fashion with Ivermectin, Fenbendazole, and Copper sulfate tonic w/ACV. I got her to eat again by feeding her meal worms then she got back on her grain. She is fed Start and Grow 20% and small doses of scratch and birdseed. Her posture and feathers have improved though her feathers still appear mussed but she doesn't appear so fluffed up like she had been. This cocoon plug you see in the poo photo comes out every morning. This morning it came out in 2 parts but I think you can see it looks like a plug and got broke apart in the poo this morning. After this she seems to have normal poo the rest of the day. Anyone knowing what I'm dealing with, would be a great asset to me. I've grown quite fond of lil Sugar (as she's called now) and I would like to see her improve and be in a preventative mode on the rest of my 50 or so chickens. In fact, I am suspecting my 2 young lavender flocks of coming down with the same symptoms though I haven't seen any cocoons as yet in their poo. Sincere thanks in advance, This was the first one this a.m. I didn't notice the blood until I got the photo and it didn't look like the normal shape and half sized. A foot or 2 away was what looked like normal poo but the other half was in this one on the bottom when I picked it up. The blood was on the paper so I decided it was time to post. Usually, it is a plug by itself w/little to no poop and lots of urates. This one is unusual in that it is surrounded with poo and blood and it is in 2 parts. That is a solid plug of some sort. This is her as I said always mussed looking but not so bad as before.
