We had a 13 week old hen, Pippin, our Blue Copper Marans, suddenly start pooping blood. My little coop with the Wee Hens looked like a crime scene. I immediately brought her inside to my giant Tupperware container and put it all in the bathroom. I began to google natural remedies for cocci (after I deduced that pooping blood is most likely coccidia). It was New Year's Eve and my little hen was lightweight and droopy and not eating or drinking. I found an obscure blog with a farmer who treated his goats and bunnies with GSE or grapefruit seed extract. So I cross referenced chickens and GSE and found another obscure blog with a woman who had cured three chickens with GSE. GSE is anti bacterial, anti viral, and anti-fungal. Anyway, forgive the pun, but I put all my eggs in one basket and went to the healthfood store and purchased some GSE and put 10 drops in 2 cups of water, stirred well, and began force feeding it gently down Pippin's throat. I continued to give her as much GSE in water as possible and by the end of 24 hours, she began to drink my GSE laced water on her own. 12 hours later, she began to eat. Her poop went from pure blood to normal over the course of three days. I was filled with gratitude. I then put my sick child on it and she was fine in a few days. Google the benefits. I'm a huge convert. I think that every chicken keeper needs that stuff in the drawer. I wanted to tell everyone with the hopes that I might help other chicken keepers. We adore our birdies.
