    Hi, Im new to the group. Also new to having chickens. We have had 8 hens for a week. I noticed blood in their poop yesterday and today got some corid and the lady at southern states told me to get some medicated starter fed. We were feeding organic laying pellets. She said because of the blood we needed the starter thats medicated. So is it ok to do the corid and the fed? The lady also told me to give probiotics, 1 pack in water for 3 days. Do I need to do that to?

    I'm not certain but I think you only need the corrid not the medicated food as well. Please do post on the ER thread to ask their advice.
