    Could this be coccidiosis? It isn't blood but it is red like a orangeish type red I'm justrying concerned that's it.. [​IMG]

    That doesn't look like blood to me, just a normal variation in dropping color. Do the chicks act normal otherwise?

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    That looks relatively normal to me, too. It looks like possible shed intestinal lining, or just normal variation. As long as your chicks are acting healthy and not sluggish or lethargic, they're probably fine. If you begin to notice more droppings like this, or ones that have more apparent blood, then it may be Coccidiosis.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Blood in the poop looks like blood in the poop. Like BantamLover and Wyandottes has said, looks normal to me. Does the bird have any symptoms of being ill in any other way?
