Did you open his intestines to look for the worms when you butchered him?

Good question! I have a necropsy picture that shows how small cecal worms are if anyone wants to see it.

Just processed a roo and he didn't have worms and she was his favorite hen to pester so I'm thinking she is not wormy. 

 

When I said my hen's poos were watery, I mean watery.  The only thing I could compare it to is a cat peeing in a litter box.  I would be scooping clumps of sand out of the coop.  I tried just about everything.  Then she started up with swollen crusty eyes, and I decided to bring in the big guns.  She's been on Tylan 50 for 3 days now, along with Terramycin ointment, and is finally showing improvement.  I couldn't have done it without the help of wonderful and knowledgeable people on this forum!!!  :)

Hope she make a complete recovery!

Hi! I have a CW that is acting lethargic and I thought she was egg bound BUT when I picked her up to isolate she had white creamy poo. She literally pooed when I was holding her a bit sideways. I gave her calcium and kept her by herself overnight, she laid an egg and is still not feeling well or perky. So do I treat my whole flock with wormer and corid etc? I wormed them a couple months ago with Striker 3............I have some 3 week old babies in a separate pen out there I am concerned about now.............The rest of the flock seems fine but one has a dirty butt. I use ACV and their pen is clean. Also started using PDZ for the deep litter method. Searching for answers and then noticed white poo on the area she roosts before i put her in the pen..............

 

Thank you!
