That sounds bad Rex.  Did the vet prescribe the aureomycin ?

You could mention the possibility of Histamonosis to the vet.

Hove you wormed the birds with flubenvet recently ?  It should be done regularly traacyken !

My vet doesn't do birds,  I got a terramycin suggestion from my barber/farmer. She said it sounds bad and too late to fix.

Farm and Fleet had terramycin in pill form for cattle, the department manager said aureomycin was the thing to use.

I've only had this bird for a few weeks and know absolutely 0 about long term bird care. He was a stray needing food and a safe place to stay so I'm learning as I go.

He was OK alone in his outdoor cage all day, out for @ 1 hour in the evening. My friend's 4 hens came to stay for 2 weeks while his family was on vacation. He free ranged with them all day, whether that had anything with this I don't know. The hens don't have this problem. So far.

You didn't say if he's been wormed.  The symptoms you describe sound as if it could be worms.

Most poultry keepers use flubenvet for worming but you could take him to the vet and ask them do dose it with panacur and repeat it again in a week's time (if the bird is still alive).

Despite maximum effort including calls to numerous vets, electrolytes, antibiotics, consultation with 2 poultry forums, and a 1am run to Walgreens for yogurt and vitamin B, Chester the rooster lost the fight this morning.

Thanks for all the help which I'll pass on to anyone in need.

Sorry to hear that, but you did all you could for him  :(.
Staffies are softer than you think.

Thanks for the support. I have a bad case of the "If I only would haves" going right now.
How can I send a picture of the Poo to add to the Guide to help someone else?

Hi, I'm new to this chicken keeping game, therefore maybe a little over worried about completely normal things.  We have 4 Ex-Batts (2 weeks now) and 1 girl, Maude, isn't laying (6 days now) but otherwise seems to be well.  She eats plenty of layer pellets plus all other bits and pieces she can find free-ranging.  She has now done 2 poos that look like this.  Is there anything wrong with her?

Don't know about that one.  It's very mucousy.  Was it very smelly ? 

Just keep an eye on her if there is something wrong it will stay like that if not it will return to normal.

I suppose that's a bit obvious really  ::)

So relieved to find I am not the only sad person who peers worriedly at chicken poo!  Comes from having children and breeding Burmese cats in the past, I suppose.  Huge relief to recognise all that I have been removing daily from the hen house is in the normal range.

How is Maude? Did you find out what caused it?

I wanted to look up the infamous Chicken Poo Gallery. Is this the right place? Pictures all seem to be blank, so just wondered if it had moved anywhere or if it's just me? x
