    My poor rooster is convulsing! I found him in a heap under his girls in the coop. He is 5 months old. Is it the heat? It is 106F today but he had lots of shade and water.

    I brought him inside and soaked him in cool water, and now he is on the living room floor. He is laying on his side with his head twisted all the way back until it is touching his back, and twitches it and kicks his legs. He's been like this for 20 minutes :-(

    I'm sorry, I don't know how to help you if he is not able to drink at all. Vitamins and electrolytes is what I would suggest if he was able to drink. I'm hoping that someone else here comes along who is able to suggest something more helpful.
