I think I remember reading once that if you put some of your chicken manure in a container and let it sit you will see if there are worms in it. After I clean the coop 3 times a day it all goes in a 5 gallon bucket with a lid on it and when it is about half full it all goes to the compost pile on the other side of my property. Today I noticed for the first time a bunch of things that look like sesame seeds crawling around in the inside of the buckett. Does this mean my hens have worms or is this just a by product of chicken $#!+ in a closed buckett? If they do have worms what is recommended as treatment? They all look healthy and happy escept for one who has no feathers on her back and sholders, I have been blaming my rooster for this and it has beenthat way since the spring, at least 3 months and the feathers haven't grown back so I am wondering if there is something else going on like worms. I am hoping that when they molt this fall her full coat will come back, any thoughts?
