My BR, Pepper, has been showing some symptoms lately that would make me guess this... And she now has a case of small "poopy butt" and I noticed a small patch of feathers near her rear missing. 1) What type of bird , age and weight. Barred Rock, 9 months old, weight normal 2) What is the behavior, exactly. normal. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? one day. in fact, last night I checked her for disease/injury and all was fine. 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? no, not as far as I know... 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. no, but I found this one small blob of poop that looked EXACTLY like strawberry jelly... blood? 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. well, we ran out of feed the day before Christmas and the feed store is closed, so until tomorrow they've been only eating grit, corn and table scraps 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. grit from free ranging, non buttered or salted table scraps and corn on the cob. 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. runny and one small glob that looked EXACTLY like strawberry jelly. 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? none. 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? either one. 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. nope, sorry... 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use mulch. Thank you, and ANY, I mean ANY help or knowledge is appreciated!
