    Lost a barred rock hen yesterday. Noticed my rooster is not moving around much today. He stopped crowing yesterday. Today i found a bloody stool. My chickens are 5 months old. I know there are lots of chicken poo but heres a pic. Can anyone give me some suggestions?[​IMG]

    [​IMG] Sorry for the circumstances. It is very likely that your chickens have coccidiosis. Go to your feed store/TSC and get some Corid or other cocci treatment.
