    So I have a young pullet who I recently got she was doing really well, very sweet. Nothing out of the ordinary, until yesterday I noticed she had blood in her poop. It's thick and mucus like, stringy but definitely tinged with blood. So I got Corid and she's been drinking water like CRAZY...which is good, not eating her scratch but I'm giving her scrambled eggs. She's a little ruffled looking but no worse than yesterday, other than pooping more frequently, which I'm assuming is from the increased water she's taking in.

    How long after starting the Corid would I be looking for improvement?

    How quickly would it get worse if it was going to.

    I think if it was going to get worse, it would have already. Usually they improve almost immediately with Corid - mine did, anyway
