    Looking to diagnose these thin white worms in my blue orpington's droppings. Any ideas on what this could be and/or suggestions on how to treat it?

    @KikisGirls Okay, so these are roundworms? Guess what, I found worms exactly like this today! Also, before I could scoop them up, one of my hens started eating them!! Help!

    I would have puked too! LOL

    I'm glad you are going to get them treated today.
    Remember you gotta not eat eggs for a while too.

    Does the 14 day withdrawal from eggs apply to both the initial treatment and the subsequent follow-up treatment done 10-12 days later?

    Next time you bring birds home, that aren't newly hatched chicks...be sure to worm them the first day.
