I'd run out and get some Corid and get them on it asap...look up Coccidosis...were they on medicated starter?  If it is cocci it can kill them very quickly.

It *might* be shed intestinal lining...but when it comes to bloody poop in young chicks like that I'd err on the side of caution and treat for cocci.

Yeah if you've lost 4 out of 18 there might be something going on.  The medicated starter lets them build up an immunity to some strains of the cocci (won't completely prevent or cure).  The Corid will treat the problem.
