    I am new to raising chickens and ducks. I noticed what looked like blood in the poop. I thought it might be Coccidiosis but none of my chickens look ill. My youngest son said he feed them some red berries. Should I treat them just in case or wait for signs? Also we just butchered our first rooster, should I not eat it?

    They like to perch on the old dog house and this is what I found, if that helps

    Welcome to BYC. Not sure, but the red stained feces looks like 'berry juice'.

    [​IMG] Tell your son not to feed them any berries for now and see if their poos clear up?

    No more berries for a few days and keep checking the poo. My chickens get very orange poo when they eat carrots. Welcome to the site
