About a week and a half ago I noticed our rooster Coffee Bean wasn't eating
as much and was feeling a little under the weather. I though it was just him struggling with the cold weather so I started monitoring him thinking that he would be fine once it started to warm up around here.
His condition only got worse over a week to now where he's not eating besides a couple bites of snacks and only a couple swallows of water on a good day. He also has lost A LOT of weight, is having trouble standing and has yellow foamy stools.
I've treated him with Save a Chick because I suspected Thread worms but It only helped with some of the symptoms.
Now after A LOT more research I suspect that he has sour crop. He does have a squishy crop and it's only been emptying a little each day over the last couple days. I want to start treatment but I don't know a whole lot about it yet so some help would be greatly appreciated as he is a dear family pet. The only thing is I want to only "vomit" him as a last resort because of the high chances of him choking.
I would love to hear any suggestions and helpful tips as I will be off and on during his treatment.
Coffee Bean Symptoms list: (Though it might help.)
loss of apatite
watery, yellow droppings with green
weakness (Especially in the legs)
very slight signs of respiratory problems
slightly purple tipped comb
