    Hi All,

    I have 5 hens ranging from 8-12 weeks (one died of Cocci, I believe). I've just finished with 5 days of Curid. Since that one died of Cocci a couple of weeks and one had a bloody poo 6 days ago, I did the Curid treatment. Yesterday was the last day of the treatment, and I am now giving them water with probiotics in it. It's been raining for two days, so the girls might not be drinking from the water I'm providing and instead finding puddles. I checked the poop board this morning, and everything looks fine except for this one watery poo. One hen might be slightly more lethargic, but she is definitely eating. Shall I just wait a day or two, deworm, or something else?

    Thank you for reading!

    I would monitor them for several days more and see if the poo gets better. If they are acting normal, it is best to see if their systems can straighten out after the round of medicine you just gave them. Good luck!
