    I'm sorry about your rooster. There is a lot of great info on here, so you can learn how to prevent and treat an illness.
    Good Luck

    welcome Kentucky from Los Angeles ...so wonderful that you are taking care of your birds at 15. My daughter is 14 and I have to bribe her with an allowance LOL but she's pretty good at taking care of them. enjoy!
