There are other strains of coccidiosis that do not present with blood in poop, so that's still a possibility. Can you share some pic of poop? How old are they? What do you feed them (feed, treats, etc)? How are the others acting? I'm so sorry that you have lost a bird. My heart breaks for you
They are precisely a month old yesterday and day before yesterday, we feed them Lone Star Chick-Starter. We use Lone Star for all of our animals and they all love it more than any other type of food. I just introduced a little bit of bread to them just the other day, but they didn’t like it. The other are acting fine, the other bantam drags its wings but from the pictures I’ve seen of Old English Blue Bantams their wings naturally have a drag to them.

I had a pullet that had this happen as she died. I believe it may be just a possible part of death sometimes. Breaks my heart. I'm not an expert or anything by any means, but sharing my experience with my precious bird that passed.
(Btw great job I see you just hit 2,000 messages! I hit 1,000 for my reaction score today, and 600 messages to!)

Please. We need very much to know your location. It's the first piece of information you needed to provide. The second was the age of the chicks. This piece-meal batch of clues is maddening. We want to help but taking wild guesses just doesn't cut it.

My questions:
1. Where are you?
2. What was the temperatures during the day and at night during the "cold snap"? (Cold snap can cover a wide range from 55F to 20F)
3. How long has it been since you provided heat to these chicks?
4. Have these chicks ever been outside on the soil?

I also just realized when I went to check on what kind of chick crumbles we used I remembered we had to buy a different brand this time because our local feed store was closed and we needed the starter that day, it is the Dumor 20% Starter Crumble from TS.

I’m in LA.
The highs are about 75F and the lows are about 45F, but I’m not really sure about that.
We provided heat the first few days but since it was big time still summer heat going on we didn’t because we kept them in the garage and it was probably at a constant 90-98F, once we moved them out of the garage it was still the same conditions.
No they have not touched the ground, except for a little accident when I was holding one it slipped out of my hands and I had to catch it but it was not on the ground for over a minute.

Ok so here is the where the food and water is located at, and I just finished installing the heat lamp! I’ll update in the next week or so to let y’all know if nothing else happened.

Thankyou for the info. I am assuming you mean Louisiana, not Los Angeles. Please list every single thing you've given them to eat since you've had them. We already know you offered them bread. What else?
Just this week I put a little grit in with their food and a little cracked corn, just a little though, I don’t like giving little chicks a lot of treats. They didn’t even like the bread I gave them they didn’t even hardly peck on it. Besides that they have just been on steady chick starter as I’ve done with my other chicks in the past.
