How to stop watery whitish, greenish, brownish-yellow and blood stains in your chicken droppings for a full recovery.

How to stop watery whitish, greenish, brownish-yellow and blood stains in your chicken droppings for a full recovery.

Since ancient times, poultry farmers have used the color and texture of poultry droppings or droppings to identify certain abnormalities/diseases in their local chickens.
However, these abnormalities may or may not be a sign of illness or disease, but in many cases, they are a sign of one or two diseases. Other factors that can change the color of chicken droppings include feed, stress, brooding, weather conditions, poisoning, etc., and in this case, the color change may not last more than two days.
On the other hand, some diseases cause white, green, yellow, brown or even red watery stain in chicken droppings, which is often called diarrhea and can cause the death of 5 to 80% depending on  pathogenicity of pathogenic organisms.

The problem that many farmers face is how to identify what causes different colors of chickens and what drugs to use.
I promise you that by the end of this article, you will be able to give your chicken the right medicine for diarrhea and answer these questions.
 Categories of chicken diseases, diagnoses and medication

Group 1:
This disease is usually caused by bacteria (Samonella) or internal parasites (various worms), diarrhea is one of their main symptoms. That is, if the right medicine can stop the diarrhea, there is a chance that the chicken will make a full recovery. .
The color of diarrhea can vary from white, brown, green, or bloody. These diseases can be treated and the diarrhea (watery and colored) goes away if given the right medicine and treatment, which I will suggest in this article.

Examples of such diseases include fowl typhoid and cholera, coccidiosis, infectious coryza and internal parasites (various worms).

 Part 2:

This type of disease is a viral disease that cannot be cured even when the diarrhea can be stopped because in this case, the diarrhea is only a secondary symptom resulting from an opportunistic disease that is usually bacterial.
Here, watery stools or diarrhea can stop when you give the affected chicken medication, but it will not cure the disease. A possible treatment is to isolate sick chickens and vaccinate the rest of the flock thereby respecting bio security measures.
An example of such a case is Newcastle disease which causes greenish poop. Antibiotics can be given to chickens but will not cure viral infections, knowing this will save you a lot of stress and money. Examples of diseases that are common in the tropics are Newcastle disease, avian flu, infectious bursitis, IBD (Gumboro), and Marek's disease.

Category 3:
These are non diseases that cause diarrhea in chickens and do not last long. Medication is not always necessary in most cases. Examples include diet, weather, stress, poisoning, brooding, etc. Apart from poisoning, chickens can recover quickly from diarrhea.
Realizing that some of the diseases that cause diarrhea are treatable, others cannot be controlled, and although some are not serious and require little or no attention, it is a matter of grouping the diseases based on the color they appear in chicken droppings. , and the proposed treatment. 

For proper diagnosis, we need to distinguish between normal chicken droppings and diarrhea chicken droppings. 



What does a normal chicken poop look like
The thing about normal chicken droppings is that they are not fixed colored. Everything depends on the nutrition and health of the chicken. However, ash with a white cap is considered normal chicken droppings, and many colors can be normal. 

Disease causing greenish chicken poop

Suspected diseases include Newcastle disease, avian flu and Marek's disease. All of these are viral diseases for which there is no cure, even when the green grass is gone. The best thing to do is isolate the affected chicken(s) and vaccinate them according to the local poultry vaccination system. Get the right bio security measures.
Worms are another suspect that can cause green poop. The most common worm is roundworm, which causes depression to grow and the appearance is not good.

Cholera also shows these signs and can kill chickens. Mortality can be 80 to 90% during epidemics. 

Recommended drugs:

 The best treatment for viral infections is vaccination or immunization and biosecurity. You can give antibiotics for opportunistic infections, usually bacteria.

 For worms, you may find dead worms in the feces of infected chickens. Give them piperazine for roundworms only, albendazole and ivermectin for roundworms, capillaria and cecal worms. Contact your veterinarian for prescriptions and withdrawal times.
For fowl cholera, use tetracycline, sulfadimethoxine or sulfamethazine. Be sure to destroy all dead and diseased birds and disinfect the houses and equipment.

Disease causing greenish yellow/ yellow foamy chicken poop
A yellowish color is often seen in the early stages of coccidiosis. You need to administer any Cossidiostat vaccine to nip it in the bud. It is also the main symptom of fowl typhoid. You will notice that the chicken is sleepy, hungry but thirsty and standing in the dark, its head close to its body. 

The feathers on the crest and wattles often turn red. The most common symptom is passing green to purple watery stools. It can also be caused by internal worm infestation

Recommended drugs:

For coccidiosis, give drugss like Amprolium, Embazine Forte, Amprococ. For internal worms, use ivermectin. Avian typhoid is treated with antibiotics such as amoxicillin, sulfaquinoxaline, fluoroquinolones or tetracycline. Contact your veterinarian for prescriptions and withdrawal times
Disease causing bloody chicken poop
Blood feces can be seen as watery poultry feces without any solids, and sometimes with solid gray matter. Bloody poop is a symptom of coccidiosis and the amount of blood depends on the severity of the disease. It is usually spread by infected feces 


Recommended drugs:

Use drugs such as Amprolium, Embazine Forte, Amprococ or Tutrazuril. Clear the house, avoid overcrowding and keep the chicken as clean as possible.
Disease causing running chicken poop
This is mainly due to the content of the diet. Chickens excrete this type of waste several times a day. In this case, you have nothing to worry about. However, brown, foul-smelling water can also be a sign of infectious bronchitis or an E. coli infection. If this is the case, you will need to treat your chickens quickly. 

Recommended drugs:
Use strong antibiotics such as oxytetracycline erythromycin or Gentatylo,
Whitish chicken poop
These can be worms or bursitis (IBD), also known as Gumboro. Sometimes, it is also a sign of cholera which farmers also fear.

 Recommended drugs:
Use ivermectin against worms, but Gumboro should be avoided by using Gumboro spray. For avian cholera, use tetracycline, sulfadimethoxine or sulfamethazine. Chicken pieces are clear or liquid
 Normally, this can be a sign that your chicken is under stress. This can be due to transportation, heat, debeaking, poor nutrition, etc. Where chicken droppings are a concern is when they are a symptom of infectious bronchitis.

Recommended drugs:
Use anti stress or multivitamins. You should not have this problem if their general condition is taken care of properly.

Black chicken poop

This is usuallydiet-related, depending on what the chicken has eaten, but if you're sure the chicken hasn't eaten anything else, you can suspect internal bleeding.
It may also be due to the high protein content of chicken feed. Brooding also causes black feces in chickens that have not eaten for a while. They leave these big, black, smelly poop, but not as black as when it bleeds inside. 

Recommended drugs:
For internal breeding, only a veterinarian can help you with this, if this is not an option you can give the bird vitamins and a lot of water. For a high protein diet, adjust your diet accordingly.
