    I woke up to one chicken dead this morning and now another chicken is not acting normal.
    She is lethargic and had a really strange poop.

    All my chickens are about 3 months old. Anyone know what this could be??

    Hi [​IMG] Welcome To BYC

    I'm sorry for your loss.
    It looks like she has bloody poop(?)

    If they were mine, I would start them on Corid immediately for Coccidiosis. Corid can be found at your local feed store in the cattle section.

    Dosage is 1 1/2 teaspoons Corid powder per gallon or 2 teaspoons of 9.6% Corid liquid per gallon.
    Give for 5-7 days - make sure this is the ONLY water available during that time period. Mix a fresh batch at least once a day.
    After they finish treatment offer some poultry vitamins and probiotics/plain yogurt.

    Let us know how they are doing.
