I have aflock of 15 chickens. In the past few days i have had two chickens die and one more is about to die. I picked her up to look at her butt because it was all poopy and some yellowish poop stuck on it and i saw these little maggot like worms coming in n out of her butt! They are gross and i almost puked. What do i do? Is the rest of the flock at risk? Should i throw out all eggs from the past few days? The ones that have died are the oldest and so is the one who is sick. But i dont know what kind of worms or what to do for the rest of them. They are free range also and i have horses, a cow and sheep can they get worms from the chickens poop if they eat it by some chance? Please help as this is a super emergency!
