What will the the poo look like if they have coccidia?

look at the first piccy in abnormal poos. The droppings will be loose, sometimes frothy and often blooming and the gut becomes more infected and damaged by the infection. Cocci usually strikes young 6 -14 week old chicks and is characterized by fluffed up, huddled, head sunk into chest, wings dropped followed invariably by death.
Treatment: ASAP - Coxoid, not sure what it is called in the States ??? Amprolium is the main ingredient though.

How about turquoise poo!! :ohmy:  Of our 3 hens 1 was a bit off colour about a week ago, not eating and looking thoroughly fed up, she has now cheered up but is still not really laying (1 yesterday after a week of nothing).  Now another one is really down, hardly eating, just gone to bed! is drinking lots and producing very watery poo.  In the hen house undernearth where she perches her poo looks turquoise!, seems to be reacting with the woodchippings we put under the perch (not dusty).  I did catch her scratching on the compost heap yesterday so she isn't that bad and does scratch about a bit, but her tail is down and she really isn't eating.  She has been trying to lay today and OH found a 'funny egg' a couple of days ago (so probably not egg bound and we have had a look).  Any ideas?

Thanks.

Has she been eating red cabbage? That can cause turquoise poo I believe, though I have never actually seen it.

Thanks.

No, good point  :blink: They do get anti worming stuff in their water but it doesn't get rid of them if they have worms.  Best get to Mole Valley for Flubenvent!  Thanks, could well be an issue.  (embarresed now I didn't think of it!).

My Barred Rock rooster is struggling to breathe and has bright yellow fluid diarhea. (It's not excessively hot weather now.) I've been feeding him aureomycin liquid with a syringe along with clear fresh water. He hasn't eaten for 2 days and only stands occasionally. Is there any hope for him?
