    Earlier today I made a post about my silkie who had gotten severly injured, she's drinking and standing now but is still pretty groggy.
    She has pooped twice since we've had her in the house, the first time it was watery because it was constantly drinking, the second time it was still a bit watery but had some blood in it.
    Is this normal for a chicken that has lost a large amount of blood? Or one who has been injured?

    Only if the injury involves her abdomen/intestines. If not check for Coccidia (a protozoan parasite). A stool sample to the Vet will tell. You can treat that with Albon or Corid (Sulfadimethoxine).
