    A week ago I acquired some chicks of varying ages (6weeks -12 weeks) who had already been treated for cocci. One chick (I think the oldest one) has normal looking poops each day that appear to have blood in them.[​IMG]

    I have six other 3.5 week old chicks and now one of them has a similiar poop.

    All the chicks are inside in 2 separate brooders and are acting/eating normally.

    The older chicks need to start going outside, but if there is an issue, I want to nip it before then so as not to spread anything on the ground/coop.

    They are eating organic feed with chick grit added (more chick grit for the older ones than the younger ones) Any thoughts/suggestions welcome!

    Here are two photos of what I am talking about:
