    Today i found a 3-4 inch skinny clear worm in my turkeys poop. There was another one i think about a 3/8 of an inch. What type of worm is this? What can i use to treat it and where can i get it? Also, i have medicated turkey starter would this help?


    I posted this in the emergency section but i wanted to post it here.

    They kind of looked like spaghettie noodles just white-ish clear.

    how old are your turkeys? I thought yours were young?

    There are different worming methods and what you use. We use Wazine, Ivomec.

    I have Older ones in my barn and 2 week old poults from them.

    They are over 3 years old id say. I gave him medicated feed (28% turkey starter) and acv in his water to help the problem. I saw about a 4 inch worm and about a 3/8 of an inch. Im pretty sure its a round worm. My dad is gonna get Wazine 17.'


    Edited to say: The one who has them is a mature gobbler.
