HELP...I have a young bantam cockerel, just started to crow in a morning (around 12wks old at a guess)

He was lively with a lovely bright red comb. All off a sudden his comb is very dull with purple edging. He cannot stand, his legs are out straight in front of him with no movement.

We are keeping him warm & giving him food & trying to spoon him water (although he isn't keen) he has been like this for a few days. He has improved as he couldn't even hold his head up initially, made his 1st crow this morning after a week. We move his legs during the day, he flaps his wings when on the floor in an attempt to get to his feet.

Any one have any ideas please???

Hi,
I'm really sorry for my very delayed response, due to no computer etc.

Your links & advice were BRILLIANT...It helped me hand raise my boy back to full health. He has produced x6 chicks upto now & approx x20 eggs to go..

Thank you very much.
