    Hi my year old silkie has done a few poop's today like the picture!!
    I've read about Coccidiosis but not sure if she has it as read chicken shed intestines too?? I'm new to this. She laid an egg this morning and day before yesterday she eating drinking and dust bathing like normal.
    I live in the uk so any ideas what I can give her?
    I change the water twice a day and give Apple cider vinegar and I clean the bedding and disinfect the coop.

    this video can help answer your questions


    disinfect the coop? it is necessary ? since a well kept run/coop doesn't need to be disinfected (at least for my coop anyway)

    your chicken's condition might be something else :/

    Not normal. In the UK you can get Coxoid and use that to treat for coccidiosis. Might also want to worm her with Safeguard (fenbendazole) dog/cat paste or Flubenvet (flubendazole).
