Evening everyone! I have an almost 2 yr old Silkie cross rooster named Gordon who has taken a turn. He has always been kind of a loner so I'm not worried that he's staying to himself. He has been walking very slowly and sometimes will stumble and catch his balance with a wing. I have seen him eating some and drinking, but he feels very light when I pick him up. Sometimes he stands still and sort of stretches his neck and head funny,. I was out of town for a while so I didn't catch his "illness" at first. So far, I have: put vitamins in the water, given yogurt and ACV to strengthen everyone, checked him for any visible oddity, dipped his legs in oil (he has had scaly leg mites bad in the past--ONLY HIM which is weird!), topically dosed him with Ivermectin, checked his throat and felt his crop. His feet are pink (he's a cross, with a big red pointy comb! haha!), and they seem a little inflamed, but it could just be healing from the mites. I have some tetracycline powder that I may give him in a syringe. Maybe. EVERYONE ELSE IS JUST FINE!!!!! He could just be deposed from "head rooster". I don't hear him crow anymore. He rests a lot. But he still makes it all over the yard with the flock when they are out ranging. Today he was moving more and seemed more alert, but still really wobbly. He has trouble jumping off the ramp into the coop. But, when he's hunting and pecking for foood, he seems happy, and my little mille fleur cochin sweeties still hang around him for treats! So because it seems to be past the point where everyone else would have already gotten sick, I've just left him with his gang. Any thoughts??? Vet is not an option, I'd just cull him if I have to.
