Hi there, I lurk around here a lot but I'm new to posting. Hoping the collective wealth of knowledge here can help me out! I brought 3 chickens home the other day. 2 Speckled Sussex and 1 Rhode Island. They are older, the Rhode Island could be as old as 3. I've kept them quarantined from my other girls and they all seemed fine until about an hour ago when I noticed the Rhode Island was acting funny. She was on the roost and her rear end looked wet. I immediately took her off the roost and bathed her in a warm saline solution. Nothing really came off her except a bit of poop and dirt. I've now got her inside in a cage by herself and can see more closely. Her butt looks like there is - for lack of a better description - giant flat pasta coming out of it. Could it be a tapeworm? It won't let me post a pic for some reason, please take a look here: http://cl.ly/image/1K1C3V2K0o2V I have NO idea what to do for her now. Can anyone give me any suggestions as to what this could be and how to treat it? I would really appreciate any help.
