Hi,
my chooks appear healthy and happy, but I noticed these eggs(?) protruding from a recent pop yesterday, and more on a single poo this morning. Can anyone advise what they might be? And whether I should be concerned. :aaargh:
They are about 1 millimetre wide.
Cheers
Katrina

They are Tape Worm segments. You need a wormer which contains Praziquantel - Worm Out, Avitrol Plus or Moxidectin Plus. Repeat in 2 weeks.

Great pic btw :biggrin:
