    I have one hen who is leaving a foamy mustardy looking poo. I found this guide on poo but the last picture under "normal", and the "worms" picture looks the same to me. I've never noticed this foamy poo until the last few days and my hens are 9 months old now, so should I give them all a wormer?

    It could be cecal poop which they deposit about every 8-10 droppings as stated in the link. If it's continuous, it could possibly be worms.
