Worm?
#1
My OH found this the other night while putting the ducks to bed. There were 2 of these worms in a muddy hole that the ducks had dug.



I was wondering if anyone knew what it was? Is it just a type of earthworm? I don't think it has come from the ducks as I've not found any more since and they're not in their poo or bedding.



I'm very new to being a duck mum and I've noticed myself worrying over silly things, so you'll have to excuse me for asking silly questions <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/blush.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Blush' />

I worm my ducks with marriages layers with flubenvet at the same time as I do the poultry. Can't see the 'worm' in your picture properly but absolutely sure there is nothing to worry about - looks more like some sort of 'nymph' or 'larvae' they have drilled up from underground to me.
I never make the same mistake twice. I do it at least five or six times, just to make sure !
