Do roosters stop crowing because a sudden change in weather? It was very rainy(hurricane Joaquin), and then went from 70 to 33 degrees all in two weeks. Coop is kept clean, he's a free ranger, and eats chick starter on top of grass. He loves his grass, so I checked his crop or a wad- seemed like there was a bundle this morning- so have him locked him coop with probiotic water, oily bread and been massaging his crop(totally following youtube video minus the puke part). Just checked him, and seems like its getting smaller, even though I am not sure what size it ever was before!
Im just going down the list of things. His comb is perky, but pale. . . his tail is perky too, unless he's perched. Other than that- he's the same ol rooster. Anyone else have this happen???? He lost his voice! I'd take this as a blessing, but I know its not right. . .All my hens are fine too. I think they are loving this weather. Oh- the rooster is a buff orpington and is 9 months or so.
He also is very clean. No bugs, his poop is looking alright. . . Any words from the experienced?
