    I found a small blob of blood in a poop pile. I don't know which one of my 6 roo's it is from. I forget what that means, Is it worms? Please help. Thanks.

    How old are they? If adults, could be worms, but could also be just shed intestinal lining, which is normal, or could be from something he ate, like berries, meaning not blood at all.

    They are of mixed ages. Some of my roosters are about a year old but most were chicks from this spring. My two Speckled Sussex are pretty much fully grown. They are my two largest roo's. They free range all day, so I have no idea what they might have gotten in to.

    Thanks

    My chickens have been gorging themselves on raspberries the last few days and their poo is full of red blobs. Hope something like that is the situation with your roos.

    May be, there are some raspberries growing wild in the upper part of our land. Up by the road that is, I know they go up there occasionally. I'll just cross my fingers for now and hope that is all it was.
    Thanks
