    While cleaning out my coop I came across this (pic below) it looks like a long worm in it too but we have treated them for worms with the stuff you put in their food. I don't know if the slimy stuff is shell less egg or mucus and the red stuff, not sure if it's blood or intestine. What do you guy's think? I don't have anyone looking or acting sick just a few molting. There is some straw and sand in it because that's what I use in my coop [​IMG]

    Which worming stuff have you been putting in their food?

    I don't remember, it's like little granular stuff smaller than their pellets. They have been on it for about a month. This is the first time i've seen anything like this. This is the first time we have wormed them.

    This kind of thing? It'd be fine as a general health booster (...except for the antibiotics), but if you want to be sure that the worms are stone dead, use a dedicated wormer.
