    here are some pics of the sores near the vents of our chickens we thought it to be just one but upon further looking at the others they all seem to have these sores, some worse than others. We are very nervous for our babies.

    sorry I don't know what that is but have you wormed them? could be a parasite? you could try soaking there bottoms in Epsom salts then squirt some Iodine on them It stains bad but is a good treatment. it almost looks like something[​IMG] has been pecking at there bottoms

    I will try the iodine thing but could really use more info. i have not wormed them as i havent seen any in there stools like i did with the last batch of chickens. i really dont want to have to throw out eggs for 2 weeks either
