    My chickens have been doing this for a long time. Ive never thought anything of it, but its starting to get louder. What could this be, and is there anything to stop it?

    I'm no expert, but I have read about Gapeworm and Coccidiosis which have symptoms similar to what you describe. Anybody know more?

    I was thinking Gapeworm too, but I wanted to ask and see what everyone else thought. Can you get medicine for it? If so, does anyone know where I can get it, and what its called?

    I don't think its Cocci, because they are all big, none are chicks. Also, I haven't seen any bloody poo.
