    I'm a little nervous because for the past 4 days there has been what looks like blood in one of chickens (have 5 hens and 2 roosters) poop. I'm not sure who it is. They are 7-8 months old. I gave them strawberries maybe a week ago. Just looking for some help. These are my first group of chickens. [​IMG]

    It looks like blood in their stools. I would get some Corid, and start treatment for possible coccidiosis in their water for a 5 days. How are your chickens acting? Lethargy, hunched posture of puffing up, not eating and runny poops with mucus or blood can be symptoms.

    Thank you for getting back to me. They have been acting fine but I did put them on Corid just to make sure.
