    Blood? How old are they? They could have cocci depending on their age. I would keep an eye out and watch behaviors. Have they ever been wormed?

    Blood in their poop is not a good thing.

    Quote:You need to check out the poop chart. They do pass a small amount of bloody looking poop its the shed of intestinal lining and it perfectly normal. Its a big difference between this normal bloody shedding and bloody cocci poop which is not good.
