One of my chicks looks like it has blood in its poop. Should I be worried ? Is there something I should do ?

I don't use medicated feed. She isn't lethargic and she is eating and drinking but I will see about some meds. Thanks for the help.

Should I change to medicated feed ? As a family we try to use as little meds as possible so that's why I went that route. She's two and a half weeks old. She is a little smaller then the others but she was from the beginning so I didn't think much of it.

Sorry I didn't get right back, I went to bed. It's nearly 9pm here. No, the antibiotic won't hurt them if they don't need it. And some use medicated feed and some don't. I personally did, and didn't have any problems. But it's a personal decision. If you could take a poop to a vet and have it tested, then you would know for sure. Did the pictures look like the poop you see?

No need to apologize. I totally understand. I got home from work today and one of the other chicks had the same thing. So I got the meds and started them tonight. So we'll see how that goes.
