Unless I just recently fed the flock any red-colored treats, If I saw that kind of poop around here, I'd probably treat for Coccidiosis, especially if there were birds showing clinical symptoms such as lethargy.

I took a quick look at your most recent thread where a bird produced red-ish colored dropping's, and it was suggested you either start the bird on a sulfa-drug, Corid, or whatever medication are being used in Asia for coccidiosis. If you haven't, I would take their advice.

This right here is going to do little to nothing to treat for Coccidiosis.

"'i also suspected her and another pullet for having Coccidiosis so i gave them regularly magic water (apple cider vinegar, sugar and crushed garlic and ginger)'"

We don't have a specific medic shop for poultry so finding those medicines would be hard.
Should I take them to a vet?

If your vet is experienced dealing with poultry, and birds, I think that would be a good idea. They would know of some of the drugs being used for Coccidiosis there.

I took my rooster to that vet before because he had Coryza. The swelling of his eye was reduced (not completely gone) but he still wheezes a lot.
He specializes in dogs and cats but I'll take them to him anyway.
He gave us the number of a specialized vet in poultry but his clinic is out of our reach.
