    I've seen a couple of bloody poops from my girls and I'm not sure if they're sick or they're shedding their lining (little over a year old silver laced wyandottes) They act ok, eager for food, active, their feathers are ruffled are their combs have color. I'm going to treat them with corid but I'm worried they're sick. I might love my birds a bit too much . . .

    If it's occasional, and the girls are acting fine, I would not choose to treat them with Corid. Can you show pics?

    There was also a poo in their coop that had some blood in it, kind of stringy blood on the hay

    I would start corid treatment. If it is cocci it will take over fast if untreated. I actually had a silkie to have bloody poops and act fine. I thought it was lining. The next day she was sick and I started corid. By day 3 she was back to herself.
