    I'm a veterinary technician for small animal though don't know much about chicken disease! I ran a fecal on one of my loose chicken poops and found this. I think capillaria but what is the larger stomach worm looking one??[​IMG][/IMG]

    Ps. I have 8 birds ranging from 6 mos-2yrs. None are acting sick. Egg production has dropped and they're eating more.. Due to season vs. disease?
