    Sorry for the gross picture but I just found this poop. Might that be a worm? If so, what should I treat with? I do have one hen that's been laying soft eggs and I already treated for coccidia. [​IMG]

    It's normal poop. I know it looks weird, but that's often how it looks in the spring and summer when the chicken is drinking more water

    And you saw the long string like thing on the bottom right? That's also normal?

    Yep
    A sign of worms is a hen laying eggs that have poop on them.
