    Occasional sneezing from dust in feed or bedding can be normal, but if it is happening often, the chick may have a respiratory virus. Do you see any nasal drainage or watery eyes? Blood in the poop can be a sign of coccidiosis. Where do you live? Amprollium (Corid, Coxoid) is used to treat coccidiosis. In some countries sulfa antibiotics or toltrazuril are used to treat it. Signs of coccidiosis are sleepiness, hunching or puffed up posture, not eating, and diarrhea with mucus or blood.
