    I would just like confirmation that it is in fact a worm, and how I'd be able to treat her for it, please help! 20180324_125333-1.jpg

    Edit: nevermind, I looked up some info and I think it's just interestinal lining, I've never seen that before so I got a little concerned!

    It just looks like an extra long little poop.

    Probably some mucus in there. How old is she? Some chicks with coccidiosis can have runny poops with mucus or blood.

    She's between 1-2 weeks now. Shes still very small compared to the rest of the chicks her age. Her feathers are growing but her body hasn't gotten any bigger, she's been eating really well and drinking so I don't know what is wrong with her

    Perhaps you could add some vitamins to her water for a few days. Does your feed contain probiotics on the bag?

    If you just pop into your feed store or where you bought them and ask for chick probiotics and electrolytes that will get you covered. They are added to the water, usually one packet per gallon of water. Purina medicated feed I believe is what they are referring to and will know exactly what you need if you say you need the medicated chick crumble. If they cannot, move onto the next feed store as they do not know there own business :p Good luck with the little ones!
