    ok, now I know I'm obsessed. either that or just a concerned chicken mom! I just treated for cocci with sulmet at the beginning of the month. Is this red stuff blood? it doesn't look like blood to me. and I see a little stringy thing in it, don't know if you can see it in the picture. worms? [​IMG] I was hoping to get a few eggs [​IMG] before I wormed but seeing as they are molting and I'm only getting one cochin egg a day (if that) I will worm now. I saw some nasty looking worms a while back but threehorses said I should treat for cocci first (I saw blood) and wait a couple of weeks to treat for worms. anyway, one of these is really runny, and the other photo is the red poop. thanks for your help!

    after deworming it's not uncommon to see the dead worms in the stool...you know it's working then! Better out than in
