    Put the chicks out this morning and my normally very active little roo just stayed in the corner with his head pulled in as all the rest rushed outside.

    I watched him and he did slowly walk out of the coop then he pooped watery stringy poop and appeared to be haveing difficulty.

    I put him in a cage and gave him some feed mixed with warm water which he dug into immediately I mixed some cider vinegar into his water. I eventually took the feed away because he was going to eat all of it.

    He's quiet and sleeping standing up but if I offer him any mash he's on it like hes starving?

    Does anyone have any idea what I should do or not do? All the others are as active as ever.

    I do throw out a few cherries, watermelon, some cut up apples daily. Any advice would be appreciated
