    I found some spots in my chick run that look like blood in the poo, some of my babies have some blood spots on feathers so I'm not positive if it's from just poo or if they may be fighting together.

    Concerned about the poo that looks bloody I'll post picks for help and suggestions on what to do.

    That does look like blood. Do you have any Corid or a sulfa antibiotic?

    Looks like a lot of blood. I would definitely get Corid asap. Possibly coccidiosis. I've just never seen that much blood when mine got it. Clean the coop well and treat them all.

    Ok. It won't hurt them? They're only 11 & 10 weeks old.

    Thank you all for the help

    My mom stopped and got me the medicine after work the other day

    My babies are safe now with no more blood.
