    Can you post some pics? To prevent this in the future, i hear feeding chickens pumpkin seeds and watermelon seeds are a natural de-wormer

    Welcome to The BYC flock! We are glad you joined us.

    I have about 50 birds in that coop... it's hard to tell who's poop is who's...

    but have you seen any at all?
    Are there worms in eggs?
    foamy poo/diarrhea?
    poopy vent feathers?
    gasping?
    head stretching?
    shaking?
    reduced egg production?
    these can lead to sudden death.

    Hi Devon, nice to have you here! If you find worms even in just 1 bird, you best deworm all of them.

    I have not seen any of that.. yet again I sell most of my eggs so could not tell you about worms in eggs but I haven't gotten any complaints.. egg production is right where it should be. She seems a be perfectly fine though. Normal behavior, nothing out of the ordinary. I'm guessing worms because I Googled what I saw and as usual I went to BYC and read it could be worms and then I made the account to figure it out.
