This is my second thread about our Red, 16 month old Buff Orpington rooster. A month ago began acting withdrawn. The weather was very hot and at first I associated his behavior with the heat and the fact that he had relinquished flock Alpha to one of his flock mate roosters. Two weeks ago my husband noticed that his comb and wattles were getting paler and paler. I wormed the flock at that point. We've had problems with Coccidia before and thought that might be flaring up again. Everyone perked up a bit, even Red but then he returned to his droopy self and started standing in a corner of the coop by himself. I picked him up at this point (I do not handle my roosters unless I have to) and discovered that he has lost a significant amount of weight. Keel bone very prominent. Next, I wormed with Ivermectin and once again he perked up a bit and has a bit more color in his face and is a bit more active but still not close to being normal. He is gobbling down food. In addition to his regular game bird crumbles he has had a small dish of oatmeal twice a day. I have been giving him probiotics/rooster booster in his water, but his general physical condition is so poor that I've withheld the second dose of Ivermectin that was due on Sunday and started him on Clavamox out of sheer desperation at this point. Today we brought him inside, mainly because I wanted a chance to see what his droppings were looking like. He immediately produced a semi formed, bright green granular stool with a lot of clear fluid along with it. I haven't seen any parasites in the dropping. We have no Avian vet nearby. I'm researching every day trying to find something that might help this sweet rooster get back to the girls he loves. Frankly, I've tapped out my medical knowledge and I'm sitting here almost in tears from the helplessness I'm feeling as I watch him slowly disappear. I'm wondering at this point if he doesn't have clostridium perfringens secondary to the coccidiosis I treated early on. Help? Anyone? I think the only thing keeping him going right now is is strong will to live.
