Worms in poo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok,

So my pullet Saturn has looked a little thin and worse for wear.

I wormed her yesterday with panacur (along with Butter Grumbles who she shares a pen with).

Today this poo happened.



It was wiggling and everything!!

My questions are:

• could she have pooed worms because the worming treatment I gave them yesterday is flushing out the worms?

•Do I wait as instructions say 2weeks for the 2nd worming dose.

•anything else I should do for her?

Thanks lots Backyard chickens. If be lost without you!

• could she have pooed worms because the worming treatment I gave them yesterday is flushing out the worms? - yes, I'd say so

•Do I wait as instructions say 2weeks for the 2nd worming dose. - yes

•anything else I should do for her? maybe giving them probiotic yoghurt to re-establish gut flora will help

All the best
