I just bought some chicks from TSC today (Red Sex Link) and they are drinking and eating fine. I noticed one dropping that had bright red blood in it and I'm not sure which chick it is from. Is this normal for a 2 day old chick or is it something more serious????? Any suggestions????
 
Thanks, I'll look into that. I didn't think that chicks just 2 days old could get Coccidiosis.

Yes, chicks that young can get Coccidiosis, though it is more common with slightly older chicks. I would definitely look into getting some Corid/amprolium, just in case. Coccidiosis can kill quickly.
