    I'm sure this is in another post somewhere, but I am having a lot of trouble with this new website. Took me 45 min just to get here to post this. ANYWAY-- never seen anything like this before, is it worms? Or maybe just something to do with the watermelon they ate yesterday? I have 18 birds, so no idea who this came from. 20170528_095248_resized.jpg 20170528_095158_resized.jpg

    Welcome to BYC! That looks more like intestinal lining than a worm to me. That sort of thing is not normal in my flock and it usually means coccidiosis or worms. Do you have a vet that can test poop for you?

    Ick! That's what I was afraid of... how can I tell who it is? My only guess is this girl. I noticed yesterday that her comb was laying over, but seems fine other than that. Right now I'm just following her around waiting for her to poop :confused: then what? I keep there coop clean, they have plenty of room in there, they have access to fresh water and food, and they free range all day, everyday. 20170528_115902_resized.jpg 20170528_115849_resized.jpg

    They look pretty healthy, but you really should have a vet check some poop if you find more odd looking poop.
