One of my cockerels has been slowly losing weight for a while now. He's practically skin and bones, so I'm extremely concerned. I am trying to feed him all that I can (without over-feeding, of course) and he seems very eager to eat the special food I mixed up for him. He is also acting very odd. When I first brought him home he was a ball of zeal, but now he's generally depressed and lethargic. He even fell asleep in the minute I was away getting some treats for my hens and other cockerel! When I checked him over today after feeding him, I noticed that his crop seemed abnormally hard. It felt kind of like he ate a tennis ball, which isn't at all like how my other birds' are. Another odd thing about him is that every once in a while the 'back' of his comb will have a blue tint to it (unlike my other birds', yet again).
Should I wait a few days to see if he'll gain weight back on or should I call some local avian vets quickly? I'm at a complete loss as what I should do
