    Hi everyone

    I have a buff suffolk rooster and for the last 3 days he has been staggering and falling down (just like he is drunk). He sits down on his haunches and eats as he falls over if he does not. Could anyone give me any idea what to do?

    He is only 6 months old and he is not moulting. I do have another buff suffolk rooster with him as they came to me together and there is not a thing wrong with him except that he is becoming very aggressive and protective of the sick rooster.
