i would need a telescopic lens for that and possibly a telescopic lens for eye worm. however for the eye worm i hope i don't ever get it in my birds, been there done that and don't want eye worm ever again.

the worm eggs in some cases would be too minute to see. sometimes you can see little white balls in the droppings. one interesting one was a tape worm species...the egg package got up and marched off like a tiny little white leach. i talked to a friend who has a phd in parasitology and he told me that is what it was.

but i will keep my eyes open. my photgrapphy skills are always improving but understanding the !@#$% instruction book for my camera is vertually impossible especially as i don't think my camera is really designed for super closeups. i also don't like to change setting because i often forget to change them back or can't remember how to change them back. :lol: i am not a very technical person and get very bad dyslexia under stress and just small things can stress me like remembering opposites or calculating change.

great if you can add it. eye worm is not what people usually think of. i never even new of its existance and was horrified when i first found it. in africa (could be other countries too) there is a form that afflicts humans. easy to cure though but if the life cycle starts it would be impossible to get rid of as the worm aggs pass into the droppings....then eaten by a member of the cockeroach family which in turn is eaten by a chook.

Awesome picture Ruff. That's a clear winner for the furry poop prize. This our current typical furry poops to compare:

Not as impressive, but nasty all the same.

updated:

has been a week since we started them on sulphur-quin they finished on sunday
just noticed this poo
it appears to have skin in it.

the chicken this came from is free range and possibly could of drank other water instead of the sulphur-quin when they were on it.

should i put them back on sulphur-quin or is it still normal for their poo to be funny

Note the bubbles. Chook was feeling very unwell at the time, but recovered within 4 hours.

These have all been very interesting. I have come to the conclusion that my girls are happy and healthy and not a problem in sight.

Are these furry poos something to worry about? I know sometimes at certain times of the year, or in certain conditions my dogs poo's do this too.
