    I would treat for coccidiosis, by treating with Corid. It could be blood in poop, but some poop can have orangey color in it and be fine.....I would treat just to be safe as Corid won't hurt it.

    Corid, it comes in a liquid or a powder for cattle or swine. I find it at Tractor Supply Company. Give a teaspoon in a quart chick waterer. You can also give a drop in the mouth to make sure it gets some.
