    When I went to let my chicken (14 wk old) out this morning, I noticed pinkish poop where she roosts. There was a dark pink strip running through part of it, and the poop around that was lighter pink. I'm really worried about coccidiosis, I can't really tell the difference between the cocci poop pictures and the shed intestines pictures but it didn't really look like either because there weren't any bright red blobs. I kept an eye on her today, and her other poop looked pretty normal. If it were cocci, would the bloody stools be continuous? She's driving me crazy! First getting scalped, now this...

    I don't think she ate anything pink, but I did just change her food.

    I'd vote for shed intestinal lining based on the description. Do you have any pix?
    She got scalped??? Must have missed that thread - holy cow!

    Yeah she probably shed her intestines so I would'nt worry about it too much. If it continues call a veterinarian.

    Quote:OMG - she's really been through it! Good thing she was with you ... you did great by her. Still voting for intestinal lining, especially since she hasn't done it again. You did good -
