    Is this normal? Trimmed spurs are now black.

    Thanks for the reply. He is back to his old self thankfully. It's a relief to know they look normal to you and to consider that the vet didn't find them odd either. I've been overthinking everything about him ever since he got sick. lol

    Is this normal? Trimmed spurs are now black.

    Hello! I posted a few days ago about my rooster who is now on an antibiotic and is much better/almost his complete normal self. He had a date with the hens and they welcomed him very sweetly and kept bumping his chest like a funny group hug. I have an add'l question. I just noticed that his...

    Lethargic Rooster, pooping normal, crop is emptying normal, refuses to eat/drink

    He is much better! It worked! I just realized something. We trimmed his spurs a few months ago, and I just realized that they look pretty black. The tip of one is black and the entire spur is black on the right foot. Is that normal? Searching through the forums now too.

    Lethargic Rooster, pooping normal, crop is emptying normal, refuses to eat/drink

    Ok! He has no diarrhea. I have chicken e-lixir for now that I forgot to mention is in the water I gave him. It seems to have a few less of the vitamins than nutridrench but the same amounts of D, E, Ca at least. I was hesitant to give it to him straight-up because it smells strong. I've never...

    Lethargic Rooster, pooping normal, crop is emptying normal, refuses to eat/drink

    Thank you so much. He is about 3 years old. I don't see worms in his poop but I am worried about that since he's acting so sleepy. He is weaker today than yesterday so now he does not want to walk. He'll perk up when I'm with him but not for long. I'll check more closely for lice. As far as...

    Lethargic Rooster, pooping normal, crop is emptying normal, refuses to eat/drink

    I have a beautiful rooster I've had for a few years that looks healthy other than wanting to lay down and he has thick saliva. He struggles to keep his eyes open/is very sleepy. I forced some water with a small, thin syringe directly into his crop last night, and this morning his crop was empty...
