    Meat question - One of the 6wk old meaties has poo stuck all down its rear. It looks like it has diarrhea. I found a couple of "poo puddles" that had what looked like a red, fleshy ribbon in them. It wasn't a round worm, but it was definitely nasty. Is this a concern come processing time? If the bird is sick do I need to cull it and get rid of it?

    ETA - butcher day is Saturday 12/11

    ok I looked and the nasty poo appears to be a normal one... something about shedding some of the intestinal lining? I don't know if the one with diarrhea sticking to it is the same one passing that nastiness.

    They should be ok to wait until Saturday, right?

    I'd guess coccidiosis. Cathryn
