    How old are your chicks? It would be unusual for chicks to have worms, but not impossible, i suppose. It certainly sounds like worms, but bloody poop can also mean Coccidiosis. Many vets will do a fecal float for you at minimal cost, and that would be where I would start. Don't delay, though.

    A vet can determine if your chick has worms, coccidiosis or other concerns. He can also give you the proper treatment. If one chick has a problem - generally all are treated so they don't infect or reinfect each other.

    Try some medicated chick starter. Or Amprolium in the water. She might have coccidiosis. All the chicks can have the feed. If that is what it is, you should see improvement fairly quickly.
