    Hi guys!! My BBBs free range and are currently eating 24% in the morning and before bedtime. They all seemed fine this morning, but when I was calling them over to come to bed, I noticed one was missing. I found him later laying under a tree. He was panting and refused to get up. And he seemed pretty beat up, I'm guessing the chickens and turkeys were attacking him while he was down.

    But anyways, I brought him inside and tried feeding him and giving him water, but he doesn't seem to care at all. Which amazes me, because these guys are always hungry.

    Can anyone please give me any advice on how to help him out or do I have to cull him? :(
