    Okay, so this morning i went to let my chickens out of their coop as we do everyday. I went inside to fill up on food and saw blood all over their watering dish and all over one laying box. I tried to check the chickens out for blood on their vents but could not see anything! Im alittle worried! HELP? -[​IMG]

    Check all of them over from head to toe, not just their vents. it could be that they were just establishing pecking order and got a little rough.
    Just remember, a little bit of blood goes a long way.​
