    I saw this in the poop of one of the chicks last night and again today in the morning cant make out what is it? is it a worm / parasite or part of intestine? what do you think? and BTW the chicks are 10 days old and one othem was attacked by a cat who ripped of one of its arm but he is ok now eating drinking and running arround.

    It's not a parasite. It's shed intestinal lining, albeit the strangest I've seen because it's encased with lining...totally tubular. Keep an eye on the chick that excreted it.
