    My chickens have recently had loose (not watery) rust colored stool. I feed them cracked corn and Poultry layer pellets. Any idea of cause and treatment?
    Thanks

    Have they had access to any berries that might cause off color stool? Any new birds brought in or chicks introduced that might have caused a case of coccidiosis? Any other symptoms such as not eating/drinking or sitting around puffed up, lethargic? Some worms can also cause some blood in the stool and loose stools, have they ever been dewormed?
