    Hey Flock... My flock has recently started pooping orange foamy poop, but no other symptoms... Is it Cocci? Is it worms? There are no visible worms... I have just been researching, and there are so many things that can cause orange, foamy poop! Sorry for being so unschooled on the subject.. i know how to treat these things, but I'm having trouble diagnosing it. Thanks in advance!

    Is it all of your chickens, young and old?

    it seems more common in the pullets and Cockerel, but I've noticed it in the year old laying hen + 1 rooster flock too.

    One last question, do they free range(both young and old)?
