    This morning I found this in the poop board from one of my year & 1/2 old hens. I've never seen anything like it before in my 3 & 1/2 years of raising chickens. It looks like intestines. It doesn't look like the pics of intestinal lining shed on the chicken poop chart.

    Does anyone know what this is? Should I be concerned? What do I need to do?

    Could it be worms? I have no idea but I'm guessing. I wouldn't "think" it wouldn't be intestines as they are connected and would still be be connected but I'm only guessing. Take my word as a guess but trying to help.

    How is she acting?

    I just gave them their scheduled dewormer about 1 month ago and didn't notice any worms before or after so I'm certain it isn't worms.

    I'm not exactly sure of who it is but I have it nailed down to one of three girls. All of them are acting normal.

    It does look somewhat like intestinal shedding.
    If it continues then you may need to investigate further. Once in a while would be normal.
