    So I have noticed that my week and a half old chick has blood in her poop it's not every time she poops but it's happened 3 times now we had her on Pine shavings for a while but I wanted to make sure she didn't have any bloody poop because I noticed a red shaving so we moved her to paper towels she does poop normal but every once in awhile it will be covered with blood I am giving her medicated chick feed she is all by herself except for one of our chickens who is in the chicken Hospital because of a broken leg but that one has been treated for coccidiosis could it be coccidiosis or can they even get it that young any information will help

    yes, they can have coccidiosis that young.
    I would treat with Corid today.

    Would I need to treat the chicken with a broken leg she has been treated for coccidiosis once so is she immune to it or does she need it again
