    My hen ethel just did a pooh that had those kind of worms that look like rice in it. Shes almost a year old. What is the best treatment for worms in chickens. Ive been watching her poop pretty closely and this is the first Ive seen of it. She free ranges most of the day, I hst one other chicken, Lizzie.

    What you are describing sounds like tapeworm. Valbazen is best for them, but works fine for other worms too.

    Treat all your chickens, not just the one.
