My chickens have had some weird poops an I'm worried if they r sick
Looks normal to me. Maybe just something diet related you just never noticed before? Different treats maybe. Here's a link to the poop chart.
Has anyone seen anything like this before? It was in my coop this morning along with some bloody stool? It's seems gummy in texture(I poked it with a stick) triangular with a tail?
the bloody poo makes me think possiably coccidosis,are you sure it was blood and not shedding of intestinal linning? if yes to be safe id put them on corid.corid kills all forms of cocci not just some like other medicines. i believe their are 9 strains of cocci. corid kills them all. then give a probotic to replace good bacteria that could have been killed from the medicine. is there any more symptoms other than bloody poo? to be on the safe side if your sure its blood, have corid on hand. its your call to dose now or wait for other symptoms. if the bloody poo continues and they were my birds id dose if you keep seeing the blood. hope this helps. be sure what your looking at is blood. best wishes.
Redneck Farmer, that is shed intestinal lining which is occasionally normal. See the link provided by NJchixs.
That is "Lash." Here's a link for you to read up on it if you wish...pics included:
Hi, I have seen them before, if they are indeed gummy, but mine are usually "curled up" in a ball. I know because when I got two, I cut them open! Weird stuff, man.
Thanks that keeps me clam!
Thank you so much... That makes me feel better... It was a very odd and concerning thing to find in the coop.
