    Maybe I'm just a little overly cautious since all my birds seem to be getting sick.... But my favorite has been acting off the last couple days and I can't decide if it's because it's been raining or because she's getting sick too. Had her inside for a bit tonight and she pooped a big stinky watery poop. Hers usually aren't this stinky. Maybe it's just a cecal poop and I'm losing my mind. But i just wanted some other opinions

    Yikes that is horrible looking, not normal. Is your chicken treated for Mareks disease?

    Looks like it could be coccidia.

    These are her poops from the night last night. I kept her inside and now she's in the bathtub because I have no idea what to do with her!

    Can I take a poop sample by a vet, even one that doesn't work with chickens, and have them test it for coccidia? Or will they wind up sending it off for testing somewhere? No one knows of any chicken vets around here!! I feel so helpless, everyone is getting sick, and I have no idea what is wrong, no idea who to take them to, no idea what to do to help them, and I can't think of anything more torturous than having to watch them all suffer and not be able to help!! I wish I could take their place!!

    Are they still getting the oxytetracyline? If so, that might explain the poop.
