I find red droppings in the pine shaving every morning. Chicks don't seem lethargic though. I am looking for advice

1. How can I identify for sure Coccidiosis
2. If it is, should I administer them something my self or shoud I go to to the chicken doc?
3. If you advice me to go the chicken doc, are we talking here about a regular vet?

Thanks

How red? they shed intestinal lining and it can look like a rose red scared me too death first time I saw it. It will be kind of sticky too stringy looking. I have never dealt with cocci buy from what I have read it will be blood red and look like blood. If it is cocci you can get Corid or Sulumet at the feed store.
