    We have been treating our 3 two to three week old chicks with albon after a confirmed cocci in fecal matter. They have been on the antibiotic for 4 days and have been doing well but the past couple of days we have seen some poop with orange (maybe red?) strands( see attached picture) is this more blood or is it just the intestinal tract? Not sure whether to continue antibiotics after the 5 days is up or not! [​IMG]
