This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Animal Care.

In this Badge Bit you will perform a fecal parasite test on one of your animals.

Here are some articles on performing fecal exams:
 - Doing Goat Fecal Exams

 - Sheep and Goat Fecal Analysis
 - At Home Fecal Testing
 - DIY Poop Analysis


Here are some nice videos on how to test for fecal parasites:







To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - you must perform a fecal parasite test on one animal

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
 - post a picture of the feces you collected
 - post a picture of the samples being prepared for testing
 - post a picture of the results of the test
