    Poor guy has been moping for days. I thought it might be because he is getting older and there are younger roos chasing after his hens. Today he just started having bloody poos. Ive been cleaning up after him for a few days now as he has been staying with me in the house most of the time.
    I started him on Corrid thinking it is most likely coccidiosis. What Id like to know is how long it will take to see any improvement. The blood was light at first but at the first administration of Corrid the poo got much more bloody. Is this normal?
