Hi Ma Kettle, I found the same ugly little things you described in my chickens poop also. I just finished round #2 of the liquid fenbendazole mixed in their water s few days ago, and am still seeing some worms. Maybe it's just not effective given in water. I'll have to try mixing with feed next I guess. Have you had any luck yet? 20 plus hens and only 5 eggs today (no we don't eat them now). I am terribly discouraged also.
