    My Ausrolorp hen came out of the house this morning. And when she pooped a 1" white thin worm was moving in her poop. As soon as i saw that i ran and got a shovel and threw the poop out of the coop. Any suggestions on what it is.[​IMG]

    I would treat all of your flock with valbazen, the best all around wormer for chickens. For lots of discussion on the same subject, check out the link in my signature line.
