I have a roo that is one year old. A bantam cochin. I had to put him in a small cage and separate him from the flock b/c he turned mean and has been attacking the children. I tried to let him free-range to see if that would help but he went after my daughter. He has been in the cage a while now off and on and he drinks from a water bottle (rabbit bottle) and knows how to do it well. I noticed he stopped crowing a few days ago and this morning I found him sitting on the bottom of the cage just lying there. He was not reacting to anything like me opening the cage. I picked him up (which is usually very difficult) and noticed he had poop all over his bottom. It was kind of green and runny. He does have a scab from being hen pecked before I put him in the cage that doesn't seem to be healing. He has had them many times before and they got better fairly quickly. His wattles and comb do seem dry also. He does not seem interested in drinking. Any ideas what might be wrong? I hate to keep him in the cage but now I am not sure if he is contagious. Also, I have been trying to find him a home with no luck and now that he is showing signs of sickness I don't think that is an option any more. Any ideas on whats going on? thanks!
