Went out to the coop today and my rooster was acting strange
9 mo old, barnevelder rooster
feeding purina layena
he's holding his head to the left and looking straight up. He can move it down to look at me, but then it goes up and back again. Acting sluggish.
this just started today. He is in with all hens, no other roos in the pen. No change in diet or activity prior to today. My first thought was wry neck, but it looks like that pulls their neck down, not up and to the side.
Any suggestions other than seperate, ensure he drinks water etc?
