    If there is blood in the poop it could be coccidiosis. I would get them some Corid. 2 tsp of the liquid per gallon of water. If using the powder 1 1/2 tsp per gallon of water. Give this to them for five days. I hope this helps them.

    Also I saw your other post. I've never seen poop look like that. Make sure you give them grit in their food to that helps with the digestion.

    Yeah this thread got posted on accident. Can they have any kind of grit or do they need a specific one?
