Rooster shaking body vigorously - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 

Well after a night in the house I am thinking he is doing so much better considering around 3am he started the usual routine of crowing...(in the house). He is up scratching the newspaper and pecking way more and making rooster noises.  He doesn't seem to be crazy thirsty like he was yesterday morning either which is good.  His poop is not completely normal again but there is solid turds in his pen which is a huge difference from he water stool he was producing yesterday.  

 

What do you guys think?

That sounds great!!

 

Do you have other roosters in your coop with him? If so, he could have gotten beat up, or maybe they are not letting him eat or drink and he became very weak. If this is the case, you might need to do some rooster separation. 1 rooster to 8 to 10 hens is a good ratio. Often times roosters do not get along.

 

For now I would give him one more day to recharge with food and water and then you might get him back into the coop. Make sure he as plenty of access to food and water out in the coop and he should be good to go. 

 

Keep us posted along the way and I am happy to hear he is recovering!! :-)
