Is this poop from a chicken who has blackhead?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My new A-Lorp hen is producing weird poop. I wanted to know if this is blackhead. If it isn't, what is it and what can I do to help the chicken? This hen is eating and drinking normally and isn't skinny. She is around 3 months old.

You can take a fecal sample to your vet to have fecal float performed, have them check for worms/parasites.

Foamy poo can possibly be an indication of internal parasite, but you need to know which ones in order to get the correct treatment.
