    I have some 16 week old pullets. This morning, after a long night of thunderstorms, I noticed some bloody droppings in the coop. One of the girls seems a little bit not herself. Should I immediately assume coccidiosis? Anything else that may cause bloody poo?
    I don’t have any corridor, and I am waiting to hear back from the local vet to see if i can get some.
    What else should I do or look for? I am new at this, so thanks for your help!!

    I’d did some calling around and did find it. I’ll get it started today!

    Great news!
    Get the liquid if possible...it is easier, imo.

    I got the liquid. How much per gallon? I assume that I need to thoroughly clean the coop. Anything else?

    2 tsp per gallon for 5 days.
    Then a half a teaspoon for another 5 days.

    Make sure It is the only water source.

    It's always best to keep the coop as poop free as possible but there's no way to rid it from your property.

    Fresh water with the Corid is in place and the coop is cleaned out. Do i need to actually try to disinfect it? I did see Maisie (the one that seems not herself) drinking, so that’s good.

    What type of bedding material do you have in it?

    Shavings. It is a new coop, built this summer. Vinyl flooring, so it is easy to clean out.
