    HELP!!! [​IMG]
    I have 3 Light Sussex chickens (2 months/2 month and a half years old) and about 2 weeks ago one of my chickens im not sure which [​IMG] has started to poo red/brown poo. I did another post and most people said it was Coccidiosis. But like i said it has been a little bit longer than 2 weeks and they are still acting normally except for one of them that has started to make these odd sounds, [​IMG] before they all made this happy (i guess) bird chirping sort of sound and now it sounds a little raspy or sick? Is it still Coccidiosis but like another symptom of it, or something else. I did other research and they said when chickens lay eggs they make wierd sounds but i dont think they are ready to lay eggs yet ( this one is a little less than 2 months) so please help!!!!!

    Their voice is changing! It sounds scary at first, but it slowly develops into a cluck. If it sounds like it is crowing then you may have a rooster.
