    What can it mean if the chicken's poop is runny?

    I mean this in a nice way, but that site has pictures labeled as normal that are *not* normal.

    Brightonchicks, can you post some poop pictures?

    I am having the same problem but I narrowed it down to my LF Roo. He was acting sick. Not crowing, breeding and standing around hunched so I wormed my flock with valbazen. He feels better but still has icky poop. I wormed them on the 22nd an plan to reworm on the 2nd. Here is. Pic of his poop.

    Definetly not normal... Could be coccidiosis, a bacterial infection or both. How old is he?

    It has started to dry and is by some other poop that had been stepped on. It's not as runny as the other poster, more like really lose.

    He is a year in a half. I have a bantam that is about 7 months that is acting like she has coccidiosis but was unsure. She is sleepy and hunched. I have corid on hand so I can start treatment. Can they be wormed at the same time? I am supposed to worm again on the second. How do you treat a bacterial infection?
