    Ok,

    So my pullet Saturn has looked a little thin and worse for wear.

    I wormed her yesterday with panacur (along with Butter Grumbles who she shares a pen with).

    Today this poo happened.

    It was wiggling and everything!!

    My questions are:

    • could she have pooed worms because the worming treatment I gave them yesterday is flushing out the worms?

    •Do I wait as instructions say 2weeks for the 2nd worming dose.

    •anything else I should do for her?

    Thanks lots Backyard chickens. If be lost without you!
