Is this chicken poop normal? Warning poop pic

When I went out to the coop I found this poop. Is it normal? I have never seen this before?

Those are cecal poops (if that's what you're asking). :) Every eight to 10 poops will come out looking like that.

 

Is it my eyes or are they foamy? If they are, that can indicate the presence of cecal worms, which can be treated with a wormer like Valbazen liquid goat wormer.

 

Hope that helps!

This helps a lot! Thank you!
Yes it is foamy. I will get some valbazen. Any idea how much to give each hen? Also what Is the withdraw period for eating eggs?
Thank you again!

It's .5ml/cc for standard chickens, .25ml/cc for bantams and pullets/cockerels given orally with a syringe.

 

Dose again in five days to get tapeworms.

 

Recommended withdrawal period is 14 days from the last dose, so 19 days total.

 

To be honest, though, I've eaten eggs after giving Valbazen and had no ill effects. I also feed them to my dogs. Some people eat them, some people discard them. Your mileage may vary. :)
