I have been gone for 4 weeks and a friend has been feeding and watering my chickens. While I was gone I was told one of my pullets had died. My friend that was watching my chickens buried her before I had a chance to see the corpse. I was wondering if the cause of death could be from worms? I noticed before I left that some of my chickens had foamy poop and now it is a lot worse. Does it look like worms or coccidiosis?

Can you take a fecal sample to your vet to have a fecal float test performed? They will be able to identify which worm it is.

Here's two de-wormers that work for most worms common in chickens - 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.
