:welcome  Check if it is bleeding from a injury. If there is blood in the poo the chick has internal problems and may not make it . you should separate them for sure until you know what is happing with the chick. Speak with the seller see if they have more with the same bleeding . and perhaps exchange the chick . good luck with this .

I called them and he acted surprised! He doesn't raise chickens for pets....it's a business. I just got some oxytetracycline for her. But I'm no mathematician. I can't figure out how much to put in. It's a qt size water bowl. Any suggestions ? It says 200-400 mg/gal

you could double check dosage  or   post also at  "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread,  he may not have coccidiosis, he could have something  wrong internally,  or parasites.
