    Hello, I'm not sure about the worm thing but you need to separate them now. You could get some diatomaceous earth and sprinkle it in their food, that may get rid of the worms. I hope someone else can offer you better advice [​IMG]

    Quote:That may not have been a worm she ate...it sounds like a soft shelled egg without the whites and yolk. If was in fact a worm, it would have to be a tapeworm and tapeworms are segmented. Treatment for tapeworms as well as all other worms is valbazen. Ivermectin wont kill tapeworms.
