Sick chicks or normal stools?

    Is there anything other than coccidiosis that could be causing my 3 week old chicks to have blood in their stools? I have 10, and have noticed 4 or five stools over the past week that look like they have a red streak in them. All the chicks are eating, drinking, and active. All the other stools are completely normal.

    If you even slightly suspect coccidiosis, start treatment. It can't hurt them if they don't have it, but it can save their lives if they do!
