What would cause a Chick to have bloody poo? I just got 4 new Silkie chicks, one is about a week old now an I got her on Saturday and the other three I got from the same lady yesterday that range from (now) 2 days old, 1 week old and 1 month old.. Their all in the same tote so I dont know who's the one it belongs to... their all still in quarantine (thank god) but it doesnt change the fact that I just spent over $30 for these chicks and its possible theres something wrong with them.. The larger Blue Silkie chick who is a month old seems to have an upper respitory thing going on because when I picked her up, her left eye was all gooped up and she couldnt open it.. I let it go for the night just so she could settle in an I went to work, when my husband and I came home, it was still gooped shut. I took a warm washcloth that wasnt completely rung out and sat it on her eye for about a minute and when I took it off there was pussy discharge seeping from between her eyelids, when I wiped it off her eye poped open like there was nothing ever wrong with it! other then that, besides needing a bit more weight (im use to really fat chickens), they SEEM fine... TIA!!
