The only worms where you would see segments in the poop would be Tapeworm proglottids. You would see them moving like in the video below.

Are your birds molting? Could it be keratin sheaths you see?
Dark poop can be from a number of things. Do you add ash to your run, what's the color of your dirt?

:sickOk so maybe that is parts of scratch like I originally thought. I don’t add ash to my run. Idk if you can tell that well from pics but pics I took over the weekend show color of dirt in their run where they are now confined to(well that and inside their coop and stuff) since like Oct cause they have no cover. Hawks are big issue here. I just never have seen their poop this dark not even when they had full access to blueberry plants and stuff. Nothing has changed though but suddenly their droppings are this color! And smaller darker color in last photos i posted.

I figured out how to share my link. Went into check on her min ago and she’s breathing noisy..which is unusual for her. Looks like she has messy butt or possibly now has pasty butt! She didn’t have this earlier. Best photo i could possibly get of her back side. I attached link of her breathing! Please lmk if it’s working I’m worried now about this breathing!

I read worms could cause messy bottom or Pasty butt.. but what about the breathing issue?! These are both new symptoms.

I would make sure she's drinking well and is eating if she will, but hydration is important.
Check her crop to make sure it's emptying completely overnight - take out food/water at night, check first thing in the morning.
Feel her abdomen for bloat or fluid below the vent between her legs.
She's got ventilation where she's at right?

It probably won't hurt to deworm her.

Her crop was empty last night it looks like she drank some out of her dish. I gave her regular and she had a after with nutridrench checked her abdomen it feel fine. I cleaned up her pasty butt put some vasoline on her vent. Her pasty butt was like rock hard and plugged up it stunk to high heavens. What is the breathing thing about? Yes she has good ventilation she’s just in our insulated garage in her little crate with night light so sh can see food and water at night and brooder heat pad thing. I’ll take her food and water out tonight and check her crop tomorrow am. I have to figure out how to weigh her don’t have scale rn that’s working. I’ll get one weigh myself then hold her and weigh myself again to see. That would be ok right? Last i check she was like 3-4lbs i think?
