I recommend that you purchase Corid 9.6% liquid solution and provide it for your chicks to drink. Dosage is 9.5cc's per gallon of water for 5 days. Make a fresh mixture daily, dont add any ACV nor vitamin supplements to the mixture.

The symptoms you described does sound like Cocci. The bloody poop is one of the last signs/symptoms to appear. Just to be safe, I would go ahead and get some Corid and mix it in with the water. It will not hurt any chicks if they don't have Cocci. Lots of people ( myself included ) give the Corid water as a preventative. It basically just slows the growth of the Cocci so the chick has a chance to build an immunity to it :)
