hello,
So I went to clean out the coop this morning and found some odd looking poo from the chooks that I haven’t seen before I’ve attached a pic, can someone please tell me what the white/clearish balls are in the poo. Could it be worm eggs?
Thanks.

It doesn’t really look like tapeworm since they are more flat, but it could be some type of insect larvae. I would take some fresh droppings in to your vet to get a fecal float to look for worm eggs. Most vets will do that for a fee, no matter what the animal.

Thank you :) I put the poo in the fire pit so will get some to take to the vet next time I find some.
