I have a BR roo that is about 6 months old. When he was a chick he had pasty butt and we would clean him up every day and it seemed to clear up fine. As he grew his tail feathers did not come grow normally but I assumed it was because we kept them cut back when he was young. Over the past couple of days he has been asking strange and weak. Last night I found him laying on the coop floor (he is always on roost at night). So I picked him up to separate and examine him. He has an awful case of what appears to be pasty butt. In addition he has Maggots on his back above the vent!! I sat him back down and complicated what to do and he went and laid in the corner of the coop. I came back out this morning and he was up moving around. Is there anything I can do the rehab him??? Is his quality of life too poor and need to be culled? I would prefer to attempt to rehab him, but I want to do the humane thing.
Thanks for All Your Help
