    One of my 2 week old chicks has blood in her poo! I looked @ all of there hineys and brought the one in that had some poo stuck to her and waited for her go again and it was normal. But went back out to the coop there was fresh spot out there w even more blood. Should I bring them in one @ a time to see who's doing it? None of them are acting sick! What is going on!?

    Yes and I would clean that pen every day . It is the waste that will cause the others to get sick. Its extra work but with great reward![​IMG] You can use bleach and water just make sure you rinse well, there are other products that you can buy, but that should do fine. good luck
