    Im leaning towards intestinal lining cocci is usually in globs.Although i would watch them to see if any of them are lethargic.



    Merry Christmas!!!

    Thank you so much! It just seems so big and red!!! Everyone seems pretty good ... I'm going to worm them this week as well to eliminate but didn't know if I needed to be more worried about this much lining / whatever it is!

    Merry Christmas :)

    Intestinal lining is normal no need to worm.

    I had bought dewormer prior to finding this poop (I've head shed lining but nothing this dramatic!! haha) and was going to just as a preventative at this time of the year.. Would you recommend only worming when worms are present or there are symptoms indicative of?

    Sorry! Thank you!

    I only worm my chickens unless they have it.


    First off your just putting a whole bunch of chemicals in there body.The worms will become immune to the dewormer and wont work.
