Hello all, Got a problematic Barred Rock about 3 years old. She had developed Vent Gleet (Slimy Butt) during the winter and didn't notice until March sometime when the slime advanced to her underbelly. Took preventative and action measures to, "Dry her out". Epsom salt bath with blow dry. Clipped her vent feathers and cleaned every morning. Added ACV to water along with vitamins and a dash of epsom salts too to help the insides. For the longest time she's had diarrhea, wet watery and explosive too. Usually it's brown liquidish with grass/weed, free range trimmings and sometimes a hint of white stuff. It doesn't make sense and can't find anything to match those specific symptoms. Since treatment began, the feathers have dried out and just keep the vent area trimmed short to avoid collecting mucus. Since reading Lisa Steele's new book, have added DE to the water, some herbs and currently on Kocci Free treatments. 3 days so far. Now the stools are black watery messes, yet she seems active and have seen her eat and drink solid food from the feeders. Don't know what's going on, but she hasn't laid since late May. Anyone have a clue to what it is ? None of these has matched the symptoms she's been getting: E.coli Salmonella Foul Pox Worms Fungus Parasites Bacterial Did I miss anything?
