    I noticed yesterday that there is some bloody poo in the coop. Not a lot, maybe three spots. This is my first flock of 15 total. I've been on Google and read about some diseases. My flock is in between 8 and 10 weeks old. Everyone seems fine. It's really cold here today, so everyone is all fluffed up. Here's some poo I found this afternoon. I'm thinking I'm needing some medicine. I've lost a couple of birds awhile ago, and I don't want to lose anymore if possible. Thanks! [​IMG]

    Yes I read about both. I haven't seen any worms. I went ahead and started treatment for Cocci.

    Great..I hope that works.

    You could take some poop to a vets office...they can test it for both for very cheap.

    (most of the time you won't see worms until you treat for them)
