Hi! Can anyone help me what kind of worms are these so I can buy the right dewormer? They are tiny and yellow-colored.

My chicken poop is loaded with these worms. Hoping for quick response!
Thanks a lot!

I found this link to a similar problem. Maybe something here can help.

I haven’t had to worm my birds yet, plan to in the spring, but I’ve heard good things about safe guard goat dewormer. I know there’s lots of threads on here about how to use it for chickens.
I treated the hen that poop the "worms" for tapeworms. So ive seen segments, but not like these. Yellow worms are new to me.

I had those exact same worms just a few months ago! I am going to try and find the link to what I used to treat it ( the worms went within days)

I dont know if thats availbale here in the Philippines☹☹
Since you're in the Philippines, you'll need a wormer containing praziquantel. It will kill tapeworms and flukes. There are certain equine wormers that contain praziquantel (Equimax and Zimecterin Gold) as well as dog and cat wormers, called Drontal or Droncet.
Fenbendazole and VermX will not treat tapeworms nor flukes.
