Hi All, I think that one of our ladies might have caecal coccidiosis... but I was hoping to get some others' feed back. - Ginger is a Rhode Island Red, approximately 23 weeks old. - She's been noticeably not eating much, even "treats" - I've maybe noticed her disinterest for a week, but didn't think much of it, until yesterday. - she's been hanging out apart from other birds for about a week: she'll sit in the lilac bush, while the others are free range dining all over the yard. - Her crop was empty feeling yesterday - when all of the other girls' were full. - I picked her up yesterday and she was noticeably lighter than the other RIR of the same age, when only a few weeks ago, she was bigger. (this is when I realized something was wrong, because I was able to pick her up, instead of her running off). - We have noticed blood (copper colored) in the droppings in the coop, not sure for how long - being novices at this, we thought it was from our first layer, that maybe she had torn something (how dumb are we). - She'll drink some, and she'll peck at a few things, but doesn't seem to be eating. - I'm getting some Corid from a friend today, and hoping that will help, and that it's not too late. - Our run has been damp after a lot of rain the last few weeks. We have straw on the ground in the run (about 300 sq ft) and it hasn't dried out well. The chicks are housed in a chicken coop that we've been trying to keep clean, but the poo will build up sometimes. When we're at home, they're allowed to free range throughout the yard. - I intend to treat this myself, but can take fecal samples to my Veterinarian if necessary... Could Coccidiosis be diagnosed through feces? Could this be something else? Halp!
