MY rooster is panting and has hardly moved in over a day!?!?
Ok, a number of questions:
How old is he?
Has he been checked for parasites?
Was he vaccinated for Marek's Disease?
What do his stools look like?
Is he eating and drinking?
Where is he being kept, could it be too hot or too confined?
Tell us some more and perhaps we can help.
He is almost a year.
No he hasn't been vaccinated or checked for anything.
He was out in his coop.....actually no, he was laying out in the run. I just brought him inside.
i havn't seen him eat of drink....there is food in the cage i am him in and he hasm't touched it yet and i havn't seen him poop yet.
How warm is it where you are? Could he be overheated?
Do you have snakes there? Could he have been bitten?
I'm sorry i don't have anymore info.
I just brought him inside so i don't really know too much.
I noticed he was acting funny the last couple of days....just not being himself
its only 2 degees C. No snakes this time of the year. theres no bugs or snakes. MY dogs are the only predators, and my dogs are alwasys inside when the chickens are out.
Are there any gashes or wounds anywhere? What does his breathing sound like? Do you feel any fractures in his legs? Are his eyes clear or cloudy?
no wonds, no fractures, clear eyes, he is breathing heavy usuing all excesory musules.
Can you post a picture of him. When you say panting - do you mean open mouth breathing? Are his wings extended/hanging down and away from body? Is he laying down or standing in one spot? What color is his comb? Have you felt his crop for impaction?
