kinda like an earth worm, but white and smooth and can be short or a few inches long...


and they can actually end up in eggs too...

Chickens with access to dirt will most likely get worms at some point. Baby chicks don't usually have worms.

Most do not get very severe cases, but some do, and must be wormed.

Some people on this site advocate a regular program of worming, and others never worm.
