    Hi guys, yesterday my rooster suffered heatstroke or something of that nature, he wasn't able to stand and wasn't responsive to anything except food and water. I spent the next few hours getting him strong again. He is better now - perky, crowing, responding to us, and making his normal noises. We would let him outside and get back to doing what he does, but he still cannot stand. He just sits there. He hasn't had any leg injury that we know of, and it is confusing the heck out of me. I would love to hear any answers soon, as I do not know what to do. Please help me and him out. Thanks.
