    Relaxing with my Buns
    I have a BCM Roo, today I wnet to check on him, and her was sitting in the grass sleeping all by himself.
    I picked him up, his comb is turning REALLY black but he doesn't have frostbite. He can stand up and is willing to eat. But he hasn't pooped yet. He sleeps with his head up, and is kinda alert. He just wants to take it easy for now. I have put coconut oil on his comb to help brighten it up. Please help me figure out what is wrong with him! He is the only son of my deceased BCM Roo(RIP Copper) And I want him to carry on his generation. His name is Copper Jr.
