    I have 30 3-week old chicks that were vaccinated from the hatchery. but now I see bloody poop in some. Not all of them. But I don't see any of them lethargic at all. they seem just fine. I do have corid at home, should I give it to all of them? its impossible to tell who has bloody poop and who doesn't. so if I give corid, it will go to healthy ones as well... is that ok?

    Were the chicks vaccinated for cocci? It is more common for them to be vaccinated for mareks.

    Treat all of the chicks.

    I would treat the flock. They might not show signs, but they've been exposed. That's just me.

    Thank you both so much for the info. I will start today. I do have another brooder next to the first one with chicks and ducks but they don't seem to have it yet. I will wait for the first signs then start with them too...
