Hi, my rooster is limp and keeps having seizures and randomly gasping for air. I found him wet with frost on his tail feathers. I brought him in and warmed him up. Once he was worm for a few hours he started to seize. He rolls his head around and opens his eyes a little to look at me. He has not eaten in 12 hours and can not eat or drink. I doubt he will make it but I would like some advice to try and save him and/or comfort him until he dies. Have any ideas on whats going on?

He can breathe fine, he just randomly gasps. Should i give him a blanket to lay on to keep him comfortable?

Do a physical checkup on your rooster, eyes, nostril, crop, skin, butt area, legs, and bottom feet. And report back your findings. Also check inside his mouth for any signs of fungus growth or anything usual.
