    Canada eh?
    This is my hen. Shes lethargic. I was wondering if she has cocci so i can treat it.

    The poor little girl

    Her poop (in real life its quite green)

    A different poop, looks about the same and same color

    There is no blood but i heard somewhere there doesnt need to be for some types of cocci.

    Please help.

    Sorry... Can I suggest you use the Search here on BYC... and also give more info on the hen.. how old is she? What is she eating? Does she free range? Other chickens, a flock? Changes in food, bedding, etc.? Checked her crop? Is she laying? What have you done or tried so far? What are you doing for her?

    Use the Search here for "Eggbound", "Cocci"... "Worming".. "normal poop" (there will be a link to pictures on a UK site).... the only thing that really won't help much is searching "lethargic" ... too general, too common a symptom.

    Good luck... someone who knows more will be able to help more.. sorry.

    She is not eating based on the color of those droppings. You could treat her for cocci. It won't hurt her and may even help. How's her crop? Have you seen her eat?
