    is there any bleeding? Check under the wings and make sure there arent any severe wounds. He may be suffering from blood loss. They can bleed like crazy during and after fights. Mine have anyway, i have had to use wonder dust a couple of times. If it were me( and i am no expert by any means) i would give him some nutri drench or something to boost his energy level and vitamin intake. Keep him warm as well.

    Could you prop him up into a sitting position in a box of hay? Perhaps he is just dehydrated.
