How to know when chickens are infected
The most easily recognized clinical sign of severe coccidiosis is the presence of bloody droppings. Dehydration may accompany coccidiosis. Chickens droop, stop feeding, huddle together, and by the fourth day, blood begins to appear in the droppings. The greatest amount of blood appears by day five or six, and by the eighth or ninth day, the bird is either dead or on the way to recovery. Mortality is highest between the fourth and sixth days.
