We realized the extent of her parasitic infections too late to save her. RIP, Dumpling.
At the first sighting of blood in poop, a common symptom of cocci in chickens, I decided not to risk losing any more of our flock. Gwen hasn't been laying for quite some time, which is a symptom Dumpling shared. I medicated all 9 of the girls for both cocci and worms with Sulmet and Wazine. Because of the medications we can't eat any of the eggs for 2 weeks. We're giving them to our neighbors for their dogs.
Ever since I started the meds we've gotten some weird eggs that are wrinkled, crinkled, bumpy, and just, well... weird. Worming meds are hard on their systems. But yesterday's "egg" was the weirdest yet.
This rubbery thing was in the nesting box yesterday, along with the 3 brown eggs.
