    Hey all! I am in need of help please! I just got 2 new girls to add to my existing flock (of 15- really I started w 3 and a yr later this is where I am). Unfortunately, not thinking I immediately added these 2 into my coop and then seperated them a day later after noticing yellow foamy poop from one of them. Both are EE's the one in question is all white (J), the other is brownish and is already laying blue eggs. J is not laying yet- the first day or 2 she drank/ate very little - but since has started eating and drinking well. I did offer a vitamin & probiotic water 2x in the past week.She still has some yellow droppings not as runny. My concern is that she may have a coccidiosis outbreak- or it may be that she was stressed (very hot day- Fl, several birds in the cage, transport was a couple of hours, etc).... yesterday I noticed in my main coop there was yellow foamy dropping as well- but I did offer my main flock the V&P water as well.... Suggestions pls? Thx for any insite- Chic-On
