    @casportpony (Poop Inspector General) :bow

    My 32 day old RIR girl, Reba, pooped this today. I think the orange/red stuff is shed intestinal lining probably, but the egg drop soup looking stuff has me worried. Why does it look like that? The first pic is as I found it, second one is the same poop wiped off onto a paper towel so you can see the color better.

    Really? Wow. Ok.

    If it helps, there are no other symptoms. Everyone is energetic and happy. They've never been outside before, so I don't see how they could have picked up worms. If you think it's best I'll do it though. I'm going to TSC today. What's on my shopping list other than Corid?

    Oh, and would you treat for mild or severe?

    How long have they been on dirt?

    All I can say is that that red lining is not normal in my flock. :idunno

    They've never been on dirt. Just cardboard with pine shavings.

    Ok. Is it just the color that worries you? It's mostly orangey.

    :thumbsup Roger that. I'll start treatment as soon as I get home.

    What wormer would you recommend?

    If never on dirt, no wormer, just Corid.
