post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
For those worm gurus, could someone please help identify this worm. I found it in the waterer this am. I have had a weak hen that I thought was vent gleet, treated her and now I find this. She is has not laid eggs in 4+ weeks. Her poop is extra stinky and gritty. She is in with 6 chicks and her Roo. The chicks are 9w and 7w.

*Maybe* a roundworm? But it also looks like an earthworm.

If the bird has vent gleet, what did you do to treat the problem?

I bathed her first, to clean up her bum. Applied Baza moisture antifungal cream, then spray her bum with gentian violet 1%. And gave her probiotics in her water. Also made her oatmeal with a crushed bacterium acidophilus pill in it, just gives make sure she has some in her system. Repeat every other day. Rotating ACV and probiotics.
