I recently put up a post regarding my LF Brahma hen, who has started molting out of season, has a decreased appetite, and increased sleepiness. I initially thought it was a coccidial infection, because one of the symptoms she is showing is dark, garnet-red splotches of blood on the urea caps of each feces (i.e. I'm reasonably certain this isn't shed intestinal lining, which in her is peachy orange, in the green part of the poop, and only shows up occasionally). However she does not have diarrhea, she is still eating some food (less every day), and she still engages in some normal chicken behavior - preening, foraging (though not actually eating much of what she forages, besides grass). For the moment, I've set aside coccidiosis as the culprit - but she is getting worse every day in terms of appetite, and each poop continues to have these bloody splotches. Has ANYONE seen similar symptoms? Does anyone have any ideas about what this might be? Could she have eaten something sharp that's causing her to bleed internally? Could it be necrotic enteritis? Please help - I'm getting towards my wits end, and I have a very bad feeling about this.
