    I went to check the coop this morning and found my 8 week old BA rooster stumbling around like he is drunk. I pick he up in a towel and inspected he for injury- none found. Took him inside put him in a sick cage, turned a light on him and watched him a while. He is still stumbling but his poop is normal and his eyes are clear. No heavy breathing or nasal discharge. He has pecked at his food a little and he drank some water. Any suggestions ?

    The rooster will just sit on his butt. Will get up and move some but will stumble around. He is eating and drinking. I am totally stumped. Any suggestions?
