Rooster chick acting funny

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hiya! I have an Americauna rooster chick that is acting very strange. The other chicks have perked up and are just starting to discover the joys of scratching around. He stands in one spot and will slowly lower his beak to the ground while still standing as if he is falling asleep standing up. Just wondering if this is something to be concerned about, if i can do anything, and if he should be quarantined from the rest of the chicks. Im a total newbie at this.

I would quarantine the chick, change the bedding, and treat them with Corid.  It sounds like coccidiosis to me.
