That appears to be a Roundworm. It would be best to dose your flock with an anthelmintic - two effective ones are SafeGuard and Valbazen. For my birds, I simply draw up the dose first thing in the morning while they're on the perch, pinch the beak corner, or pull-down their wattle, insert the syringe into the right side of their mouth, and press on the plunger.

The dose for SafeGuard is 0.23ml per pound, orally, for five days. Valbazen is 0.08ml per pound, orally, once, then in ten days.

Albendazole, which is the same drug as Valbazen and is used for humans and found worldwide, levamisole, flubenvet or flubendazole, and piperazine are other drugs available in many parts of the world used to worm animals. Check with a vet or at the place where you buy feed or cet supplies for any of those. We may be able to help with dosage.

i live in morocco i found safeguard. im new to this is the medicine effective ? is there a possibility that my cockerel will die even with treatement ?

SafeGuard is very effective for most worms, including roundworms. Administered correctly, your cockerel will be fine. It is vital you start treatment on him now before his condition deteriorates.

After the medication reaches the worms, some are absorbed into the system, the rest, depending on the load, are expelled through the feces. That appears to be the case with your rooster.
