Thanks for responding. I do the same thing and have had great luck with my first batch of chicks. But apparently the people I got them from doesn't do that and when I called them to tell them about the problem they told me they hadn't noticed a problem...not sure how you don't notice pure liquid blood. I started them on Corid as well as my other chicks as a precaution. Now I just have my fingers crossed it works and they are ok. I am a little confused though...some posts say to give them electrolytes while they are on Corid and some say don't. Very confusing. Also confusing when you go to your feed store and they say to put them on a broad spectrum antibiotic and everyone on this site says that won't work...I'm going with everyone here.
