    HELP ASAP!!!!! My little Serama rooster just started like seizing in his cage and flailing so I pulled him out and his head was back and he was like stiff so I held him and he like pulled up water/saliva and now I'm holding him and he keeps going limp then waking up and he's panting. Help I don't want to lose him!

    Is he still alive? Has your flock been treated for Mareks and cocci?

    Yes he came out of the seizure but has been attached to me and clucks if I leave him alone. He's actually an indoor bird and hast been around my other flock. The lady who had the four Serama I have now I believe did treat for both at one time. He just seems sleepy but alert.

    Is he eating or drinking?

    I've given him sugar water but he hasn't eaten since it happened

    Sugar water will probably not help. Try to get him some electrolytes and gently urge him to eat a tiny bit.

    Sounds good. Save a chick should help. This sounds like Mareks, but I can't be sure. Look up seizure in the search bar and see what you get. Good luck!

    There are different symptoms to mareks. Have you searched for seizure? I'm sorry I can't be of more help...what are you feeding your rooster? How old is he?
