    Hello all,
    one of my 3 day old chicks seems to be struggling, the others seem to move around and want to do things and explore but one of them just likes to lay under the heat lamp on her stomach. i have seen her both eat a little and drink a little this morning but she doesn't really move other then that. I also noticed that her poop seemed to have a little dark red in it? maybe blood in the stool? coccidiosis? if so please HELP!!! these are my first chicks so i just want to make sure they are okay
