well, my new grey rooster fell over dead yesterday, no idea why. I noticed saturday night he was a little lazy looking and never as rambunctious as the girls, I tried putting avia charge in the water and he just fell over dead yesterday. I wonder if there is a way to combat the fragility this breed seems to encounter. I am still clueless as to what he passed from...they are still inside because of the weather so I know it wasn't environmental, and the room they were in have never had chickens in it before(to my husbands dismay). I am so sad as I was really looking forward to babies from this guy . So now I have to decide if the two girls go with my soft roo that I posted a picture of or a hard feathered roo that has a free range group of girls. My only hesitation with the free range guy is he is rough on the hens he has now and they all have saddles but at the same time don't want to have the same roo over all my girls. Suggestions?
