My rooster is sick and i don't know what's wrong with him ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
He woke up this morning normal, he didn't seem to be suffering from anything .
In the evening, he was somehow silent & kept on closing his eyes. A few days ago, i noticed that he's having difficulty in eating and drinking. This evening, he had his meal normally,but there was a lot of saliva within his throat even though he's breathing normally.
Right now he's asleep, i've tried to wake him up several times , he lifts his head a little with eyes closed ... I'm really worried and i have no idea what's wrong with him ?????

Sounds like he has internal parasites. If there is increased salivation, I would guess he has Cankers, which is caused by a protozoan infection in the throat. I would try deworming him.

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

Is his crop full and firm or like a balloon? Does he have a bad odor from his beak, or is the material coming out of his mouth smelling bad? Has he been wormed recently? If you look inside his beak and throat with a flashlight while someone holds him, can you see any yellow or grayish patches that should not be there? I would mix some vitamins and electrolytes into his water, and try to get him drinking.

I'd go get him de-wormed also
