    My favorite rooster, Gypsy King, is dying. I found him under the nest boxes and his neck is bent to 1 side and he cant move it back. He was always the smallest and the younger roosters picked on him so much that i had to seperate him from the whole flock. He is in a box right now because i just couldn't stand to see him how he is. Please help.

  3. I'm sorry. It sounds like his neck may be broken. I lost two that way before I figured out it was one of my drakes getting my roosters. [​IMG]

    It can be wry neck also, but if you aren't going to try to treat this bird, you might as well end its suffering.
