So... A few weeks back I freaked when I saw a couple of dead roundworms (I think) in a blop (and then another) of chicken poo. I did as much hasty research as possible and dosed my chickens' water with piperizine. Then I saw tiny white creepy crawlies in more chicken poo, scrambled to find answers, and ordered and dosed each chicken with Ivermectin pour-on. A few days later, still more creepy crawlies Then I found the Necropsy results, is not coryza or CRD--parasites are rampant!!! thread here on BYC. I read every post possible on multiple threads, then posted, a video of the creepy crawlies: Dawg53 was kind enough to diagnose tapeworm. :| I think he's right about the tapeworm segments. But I'm also convinced about the roundworms that I saw a few weeks back. In the meantime, I've ordered (and started to read) a copy of Gail Damerow's The Chicken Health Handbook, where she details how to conduct a fecal float at home. So now, with one microscope, a copy of William Foreyt's Veterinary Parasitology Reference Manual, and bottles of valbazen, and Safeguard on order, I'm determined to get to the bottom of this worm problem, and solve it start to finish. (PS - still cheaper than going to local vets....who are NOT versed with chickens.) I'm going to document the diagnosis and de-worming process with my chickens here. The one-chicken that for sure has the creepy-crawlies is also my favorite, Phineas. She's a Dominique, just over a year old. After a raccoon attack when she was a couple months old, she lost vision in her left eye, and has a off-center, crooked beak. She was never a particularly good layer...medium eggs about 2x/wk, with maybe a jelly egg here-or-there. And this past Thanksgiving, someone tried to steal her from my backyard (she likes to be held and does not run away from people). She's in good spirits, has a bright comb, very friendly disposition, and is still very active. If it wasn't for the creepy poop, I would not have thought anything was particularly wrong. She does seem a bit light/thin though. I'm hoping the thinness and inconsistent/poor laying has been the result of the worms? Any advice, thoughts or suggestions are welcomed. I want Phineas and all my chickens to get better , and I want to leave a good reference guide for others who run into the same issue.
