    Hey, I have a red sex link pullet whos not doing well... she's lethargic and doesn't walk. She's also missing some feathers. I looked at her underbelly and noticed some blackish purplish stuff under the skin! Eek! Is this Coccidiosis?! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    How old is she? Is she new to your property? If older, and not new, then it's not likely to be coccidiosis. Could she be broody or molting?

    I didn't think when hens molt they get sick...

    Not coccidia then for sure. Could she have eaten something rotten or possibly poisonous?
