One of my chickens has had a tiny bit of blood on her poo a couple of times and I am wondering if I need to worry and if its a sign of something more?

They are wormed and have no evidence of red mite.

Have cleaned cage etc with the chemical to protect against coccisiosis (?Sp) and spoken to domestic fowl trust who've said "its possibly one of those things..the chickens are too old to be coccsy..." they are about a year old.

does anyone have any experience of this at all? they are still laying (despite looking positively oven ready with moult!!) and happily pecking, eating anything they can and interacting happily with each other.
