I had posted recently about my lone chicken because she has been off her food, losing weight, sitting around a lot, having some loose poops, shaking her head a lot, yawning with her neck stretched out and most alarmingly had foam coming out of both eyes last Friday. Fortunately, the foam stopped, but the following morning I brought her in for observation and because the temps were going to take a dive below zero and stay there for about 72 hours. Here is a link to my previous post: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...ng-foam-from-eyes-loose-poop-not-eating-a-lot She has been inside for 4 days now and she still is not eating a lot. She gets about a tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese as a treat because it's about all she'll eat enthusiastically. She pecks at her crumble occasionally and will eat some Feather Fixer pellets. She will chow down sunflower seeds too. Her crop was pretty small last night, but she had three smaller formed poops overnight. Today I had her out of her dog crate and decided it was time to Vaseline up her feet because a few of the scales were raised. She had a flockmate (died last June from internally laying) who had scaly leg mights, so I try to Vaseline up this chickens legs when I get a chance. After I put her back on the newspaper in her dog crate, she pooped a loose poop which had three gel-like red things in it, each about 2-4 mm long. I isolated them from the poop with a toothpick dragging them across the newspaper, and they didn't fall apart or get punctured. I really had to poke them with the toothpick to get through the gel-like outer coating. They didn't really look like blood or intestinal lining, and I can't find any pictures of worm eggs that look like them. She was treated for roundworms (visible in poop) mid to late August this year. I treated with Safeguard followed in 10 days by Valbazen. Saw several dead roundworms in her poop, so it was effective. After that, we had a nice fall, so she was outside and had access to eating earth worms and whatever else may carry worms that are bad for chickens. She went directly into a molt in September and took about 2 1/2 months to molt. She is just growing back the last of her head feathers. She lost lots of weight during the molt but then put most of it back on once she was feeling better. It's just been lately that she is off her food (about 2-3 weeks) with occasional loose poop, as well as the other symptoms listed above. I have posted pictures below of the red things as well as the whole poop with the red things in it. I'm wondering if she doesn't have capillary worms with the head shaking, yawning and now these red things, but who knows. It's been cold here most of the month of December, and she hasn't seen any outside time. Certainly the earthworms and other critters have been gone for several weeks now anyways. She has a huge enclosed sand covered run and a roomy chicken house for at night that sits within the covered run. 2 to 3 red things near the lower glob of poop and 1 on top of the upper glob I was able to drag them out of the poop and they stayed pretty much intact. Any ideas on what these may be and whether they are related to her symptoms. I think she is about 2 1/2 years old. I adopted her in September of 2015 and was told she was probably 1 at that time. She didn't have a big molt last fall, certainly not likely this one, so I'm guessing her age is pretty accurate.
