    It is not white, like the round worm pictures I have seen.
    This came from cecal material.
    I have not found any others.
    To the best you can tell is this a worm ?
    The girls are all laying.
    I have treated them for red mites 2 days ago.
    Thank you.

    It's shed intestinal lining.

    Shed intestinal lining, not a worm.

    Looks like one of those beef sukiyaki noodles. I'm used to seeing bits of intestinal lining in segments, not long pieces like that.
