Not sure. I've had a bit of a personal medical issue over the last week and a half so family has helped occasionally and I may have missed seeing prior to this with my mind being elsewhere.I would say that poop is not normal. Is this an ongoing thing or was it just one time?
Ok, so if this is worms I probably need to treat everyone. Would this include the 9(ish) week olds that are in the dog cage which is inside the coop for separation introductions? And what medicine should I be picking up?It could be time to get out the worming meds.
I have 8 birds of laying age and 6 that are about 9 or 10 weeks old. What should I be looking for to decide which it is? They all seem healthy and happy. I just noticed this while scooping morning poop boards.I would say worms or coccidiosis. How many birds do you have?
If I were going to treat, I would do both - treat for Coccidiosis and Worms.I have 4 hens 2 years old. I have 4 laying pullets less than a year old. I have 6 young pullets about 9 or 10 weeks old that I brought home 2 weeks ago. They are still separated from adults for see-no-touch introduction. I have 1 rooster in a separate coop with see-no-touch setup. Every chicken I have came from the same breeder. I can't tell who the poop came from. Vet is a bit of a trip to get to and I only have a vehicle available once a week. The vet doesn't do chickens but I might be able to ask him to do a float except hubby was sweet today and let me sleep in and cleaned up the poop boards. Do I treat for both if I can't get a fecal float? I have corid on hand, never been opened. I'm about to go get either
Valbazen (albendazole 113.6 mg/ml) or Safeguard for goats. Advice please?
