    Hi - today i found this crazy chicken poop! not blood, like tiny mucous balls.. I have 5 hens & 1 Rooster. i have no idea which one this came from. No one is acting sick or lethargic. Everyone is eating & drinking like normal. A couple of them are going through a pretty horrific molt right now but seem ok and happy. Any ideas? I have never had to treat for anything other than bumblefoot on a rescue hen. I literally want to cry if i'm facing Cocci.. I don't understand how it could just show up one day? I take such good care of them and everything is so clean... uggghhhhh.. HELP[​IMG]

    If that is the only one like that, then no need to worry... that is shed intestinal lining and can happen occasionally... if it happens frequently, then there may be an underlying issue...
