    I've come to the conclusion that it could be coccidiosis worms or normal shedding of the intestinal lining or urates but I have no clue...
    I have a group older pullets that should be laying soon they are 21 weeks and this is what I found from last nights roost. These girls are fed food grade diatomaceous earth once a month. The girls are acting very lively and grooming themselves this morning.

    It would not hurt to worm them with Valbazen 1/2 ml per chicken given orally, and repeated in 10 days, or SafeGuard Liquid Goat Wormer 1/4 ml per pound orally, then repeat in 10 days. DE will not worm them, or do much of anything especially when it is eaten and becomes wet inside the body.

    I would also go ahead and start some Corid in their water, since there is a lot of bloody mucus. Dosage is 2 tsp of Corid Liquid per gallon of water for 5 days.

    That's not normal. If mine pooped that I would de-worm with Valbazen or Safeguard and I would treat for coccidiosis as @Eggcessive stated above.
