Injured rooster

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So my Rooster Protein is very large, and sits on our deck at night because he isn't light enough to fly onto the high tree branches that the rest of my flock sleep on. He poops everywhere. Everyone has been fed up with it, so my neighbor got a little drunk and tried to throw him up to the tree branch where the others were, thinking he would fly up there. Well, he didn't, and he landed hard on the ground, and limped away. We are worried he might be hurt. What can we do?

Your birds should be locked up in a coop at night not sleeping in trees, where predators can eat them.  Birds do not like to move around in the dark and are sitting ducks for owls and other night time preds.   I think you also  should file a police report against your neighbor for cruelty to animals and public intoxication.

x2 on drumstick diva's comments. He needs a proper coop to sleep in (as do the other birds). If you can get your roo to a vet, please do so and your neighbor should pay the bill. If you can't take your rooster to a vet, give him a complete examination and post his symptoms on the emergencies forum (pictures might help along with a description of his injuries).

In the future, please do not allow your neighbor to touch your birds.

x3 on Drumstick Diva's comment.  Time for a coop and be sure to keep your neighbors away from your birds in the future.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

My rooster was recently attacked by a animal I am assuming it was a dog because it was day time. I thought I had lost him to the attack but he returned the next day. My two hens did not sad.png his back is missing feathers and I can see the meat of it. How do I help him?
