    I'm fairly certain this came from my 10 week old pullet. I have been battling a case of cocci within my brooder, and am worried it has been carried to the girls outside but this is the only questionable dropping. Is it blood or intestinal lining?

    Looks like intestinal lining to me, but if you suspect it, maybe you should treat with Corid. Maybe, someone will come along that can help.

    Cocci is a protozoa that lives outside in the soil, so the birds already outside are likely already immune.
