    I have a rooster and he is with diarrhea since last night. I dont know if it is bc he are a piece of pancake that he saw on the floor by accident. But I notice that his comb is pale and that make me a little bit more worried. Please help me out bc I'm new at this

    did you worm him? if there is no other symptom I would worm him first and watch him.

    did you use any worming medication on your roo? That's what chickengr means.


    Have you checked your boy for lice and mites?
    Is he drinking/eating well?

    He is eating and drinking and he no longer has diarrhea. I guess it wasn't that bad. I just got him so I haven't worming him yet. What should I use? Is diarrhea a simpthom if he has mites?[​IMG]

    diarrhea can mean anything but we usually start with worming and dusting for parasites. you say you just got him so it might have been stress only.

    good luck.
