I am trying to save a rooster that i found in a dumpster filled with maggots although it was still breathing. It was very weak, unable to move or eat. I bathed it an although there didnt seem to be any apparant wounds or broken bones the rooster was catatonic. I couldnt figure out were the worm looking things were coming from till while i bathed it I noticed its ******** was moving alot and there was a worm in it. Its now outside in towels. I am in florida and the weather has been hot and Im unable to determine how long it has been outside. I fed it mashed corn and water by opening up its beak for it and then after a few hours mixed a banana with apple juice and it wouldnt let me open its beak but was opening it on its own an feeding from me. It couldnt keep its head up or stand when I found it earlier today but now it is keeping its head up on its own. I cant imagine what could of happened to this rooster or if those worms in its butt will kill it so.....can someone who has any kind of idea about whats happening give me a clue.Can this rooster be saved?
