    I notice one or more chickens have been leaving what looks like bloody poop in the floor of the henhouse and out in the run. Anybody got any ideas what this is?

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Sara Jane in Ohio. I wish I could help you. I don't raise chickens yet, only ducks.
    Hang in there, those who do know chickens will be here shortly.

    Welcome to byc. I don't know. Maybe coccidiosis. You should research it and see if that's what it is.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Call your vet and see if they will check a fecal sample for parasites.
