Hi all, this morning I went to see my girlies and clean off the poop board and noticed a small amount of what looks like blood on the tip of one of their poops. They all seem to be acting normally (except last night the youngest kept “yawning”🤔) and eating/drinking fine. They’re currently getting medicated feed and fresh water every other day (unless needed sooner). Last night was their second night in the big girl coop.
Should I be concerned?

How old are your teen chickens? That does look like blood rather than inestinal lining. You could keep a close eye on them for any more blood or acting off, but it would not hurt them to have some Corid in their water for 5 days. You could get the Corid to have on hand just in case. The liquid is easier to use and sometimes cheaper.

4 of my chicks are 6.5- 7 weeks old, and the youngest one is 5.5-6 weeks. I’ll definitely pick up some Corid, thank you!
