    Hello there! Looking at the pics, it doesn't look like anything bad. Believe it or not, there are a lot of different types of poo that is normal for a chicken. Here's a handy link for you to look at. Gross, but I think you'll feel better after you check this out.

    Hope it helps!

    What are your other symptoms in your chickens? All of those poops look a little 'off' to me. When was the last time you wormed your chickens? What did you use?

    They are younger still- only 25 weeks old. Other than the fact that they are not laying yet they are acting just fine. Still running around etc. they are eating fine and drinking so not too sure what I should do. I have never wormed my chickens. I didn't know I had to unless they had worms in their stool.
    What should I use? Oh I'm so worried.

    Safeguard for goats is a good choice. Valbazen gets ALL types of worms but is not available everywhere. Round worms are easily seen sometimes in poops. But there are LOTS of worms that are not visible because of where they are located in the chicken's body.
