I have a rooster who was 2 March 17th this year. He don't have any respiratory symptoms or GI symptoms but just his neck is twisted and he don't feel good. I found him on the ground with his neck all twisted over and really looking peaked. The other hens were pecking him- had his comb raw in some places, some feathers off his head, and some of his tail with the part that goes over the fence last really red and missing some feathers. I am at my wits end. I have given him probiotics in his water, buttermilk force fed with some egg fed by syringe 2-3 times a day. He is standing up at times now but his neck is still twisted. His eyes are clear without matter no respiratory symptoms- no wheezing or gunky nose. I am tenderhearted and wish I could help do more than I am.
