    That is a prime age for Cocci, I'd get some Corid and treat ASAP, just in case. it won't harm them if it's not cocci, but if it is cocci you will need to treat right away, it kills quickly. Good luck!

    Looks like bloody mucus to me--I also think you need to treat with Corid or amprollium for coccidiosis. The dosage is 2 tsp liquid Corid per gallon of waterer if using the powder, 1.5 tsp per gallon water for 5 days. After treatment give vitamins and probiotics or a little plain yogurt for 1 week.
