About two weeks ago, brought home some baby chicks. All had reddish droppings- like a rust color. Thought maybe they had been fed a red feed, like a manna pro. Some got watery. Some redder. Unfortunately, a predator tragedy left me with no chicks and one of my beloved hens gone. That same day, one hen had blood on the outside of her egg and camped in a nest box. Some blood on the box rim. I thought she had an escape, but maybe a small injury. That was saturday. She has not left the nest box that I am aware of; I see no sign of injury. She had had no additional eggs. She will eat and drink when offered and is pooping. She protests when I move her to clean. But now I have found reddish droppings from my hens. This is my first year with chickens. Vet says shes just gone broody, don't worry. (telephone consult, he says he will only come out for an entire flock!- he is my horse vet) She is a little silkie type (apparently not full) from april of this year. Any one have any suggestions?
