It's shed intestinal lining.
Since the vet said that your hen has gapeworm, why did your vet prescribe an antibiotic? What antibiotic did the vet prescribe?
Please describe the exact symptoms your hen is showing.

Fungal infection, suspected pneumonia, and gapeworm. Personally I would immediately cull the bird. Gapeworm eggs can be picked up off the soil and infect other birds.
Did the vet take a fecal sample and look for gapeworm eggs under a microscope?

We got her from a farm she’s 5 month old and it’s my children’s pets if I can save her I’m sorry but I will try everything, I have had 1 already whose been the same and recovered and now her I’m not just going to put her down when I no she can survive ... and no but she’s experienced in poultry so I’m sure she knows what she’s on about? She did some tests and said the 3 above ... and she said to keep on with treatment which I am doing
