    These past couple of weeks I've been noticing my chicken giving me bloody eggs(if any at all) and she's been having a lot of trouble pooing..I don't know what's up with her, but because of the blood the other girls started pecking at her vent area and making it bleed.. I baracaded her from the others so she can't get any more hurt.. She is in the coop with the chickens but in a smaller cage. Do you happen to know what going on with her, and how to fix it? Thank you in advance[​IMG]

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Is she a new layer? This can sometimes cause eggs to have blood on them. Or is there actual blood on her vent? Please do pop by the emergencies section ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
    Give as much detail as you can and pic are always really helpful too.

    Wishing you the very best of luck with her.
    Enjoy BYC :frow
