My chicks are listless, have ruffled feathers, blood in their droppings, and huddle together as if cold. They may have Coccidiosis but if so, how could I treat them? Or even cure it in a timely manner? They are 5 weeks old.

You need to treat ASAP to save them. As in right now.
Get liquid Corid at Tractor Supply.
Put 2 tsp of Corid per gallon of water and make that their only source of drinking water.
Because they sound so bad, I would VERY carefully give each of them about 1/8-1/4 tsp of undiluted Corid as they probably aren't eating or drinking much. This is called drenching. Drench them once daily for 3 days along with the Corid water.
Give them fresh Corid water daily.
After one week drop the concentration to 1 tsp Corid to a gallon of water and continue with this concentration for another week.

Hey Tonya, none of my local TSC have the liquid Corid, they have the 20% powered type. I’ve noticed one of my girls seems to have issues with a green/yellow runny poop, so far I think just one and for aboutn2 maybe 3 days. They are acting fine eating and drinking fine, but I want to treat this ASAP, I see your Instructions for liquid style, by any chance do you have instructions for the powederes type on how to mix for chickens? They are all 12-13 weeks old. Provided the link below to what I have available, my question is their mixture suggestions is for a
stock to add to 250 gallons of water. Don’t think I need 250 gallons of it lol.

Thanks

Edit: does the picture below look correct for dosing? Seems to help searching for things if you make sure autocorrect doesn’t change the spelling.
