The book I have, Veterinary Parasitology Reference Manual, doesn't mention hookworms in poultry, but I did notice that cat and dog hookworms look a lot like poultry larg roundworm eggs, or maybe cecal worm eggs, so I bet that's what they were.

Yellow foamy poop is never normal in my flock, and my vet made a comment about foamy poop being caused by protozoas. Might be a good idea to have another fecal done.

there are some goats and sheep here. I guess there are wormers for them. would they do and what dosage?
