How old are they? How hot is is where you are located? Are the droppings runny with mucus or any blood? I would get some Corid liquid and put 2 teaspoonful in each gallon of water for 5-7 days, just in case of coccidiosis. If using the powder, put 1.5 tsp in a gallon of water. Any pictures of the chicks or the droppings?

Yes, amprollium or Harkers Coxoid is what you need in the UK for coccidiosis. Check with a vet and in stores that sell feed and livestock supplies. Here is an article to read:
