    My new girls are still sneezing and I'm noticing that clear snotties are on the tops of their beaks. They're still eating, moving, drinking, etc... and I figured it was the litter that was causing the sneezing (pine shavings)... but this morning I saw a huge poo with a tinge of blood in it (more pinkish red than bloody red - but it did look like blood). I didn't see any other poos that looked like this, and didn't witness which of the 5 might be pooing it.

    My gut tells me that the situation isn't dire yet, but that the blood tinged poo wasn't a good sign.

    Any suggestions?

    What are you feeding them?

    How old are they?

    Are they free range or penned?

    What is your weather? Any cold/wet?
