    hi all!

    How often should I expect to see intestinal tissues in droppings?

    Hi @MamaHen11 :frow

    Do you have any photos of the poop/intestinal shedding :)
    How old are your chickens?

    Unfortunately, no. But I will look for it in the future. I can tell that it isn’t blood because it’s bright pink and more jelly-like than red and liquidy.

    If they are 8wks old, then you might see a little intestinal shedding. If you are seeing a lot, then you need to investigate further.
