What should I be doing in the meantime?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have been noticing the occasional yellow, foamy poop (increasing in frequency) that looks like the abnormal yellow one on this chart.  So, after viewing the chart and also knowing that one of my hens has lost a little weight, I suspect that my hens do have an issue (worm or bacterial) that will need to be treated :(  I feel bad for not catching it sooner, especially if it was caused by damp flooring in our run.  I have an appointment with a poultry vet for the 18th and will have them fecal sampled then and treated for what that shows.  Is there anything I can be doing (probiotics, a gentle dewormer) in the meantime that might be helpful?

How old is she?  If she is young enough she can't have worms

 

Probiotics never hurt.

Oh then I'm not sure, sorry. I know I was concerned but someone said my 10 week old chicks are too young to have them.
