    It looks like you may have round worms.
    The red in the first picture may be intestinal shedding, the second yellow foamy is sometimes seen with worms as well.

    For de-worming you can use Valbazen 1/2 ml orally and then repeated in 10 days for each chicken or Fenbendazole (Safeguard, Panacur) at 1/4 ml per pound for 5 days in a row.

    Here's some more info on worms:

    I agree that yellow poop might be from worms.

    do you know the dosage for panacur paste (900mg)?

    You can also use Ivermec. I do.

    Of course you will want to research it, but I believe paste would also be 10% Fenbendazole, the only "dosage" I've found would be "pea sized dollop".

    See post #13- this is for Zimectrin but gives a good idea of what "pea size" might be:

    Hope that helps.
