I apologize in advance for the length of this, but I'm hoping someone can give me some advice on a rooster of mine that is not quite right. Let me give some background... I have a roo that isn't acting quite right and limping some on his right leg. I caught him and another roo fighting a bit on Sunday (he was always dominant) - not that bad of a fight but the previously submissive one was chasing him back and forth across the yard. I caught and separated them and thought all was ok. On Monday morning he didn't want to get out of the cage I put him in inside the coop. I didn't think that much of it until I got home and he still wasn't looking to get out. I pulled him out of the coop and brought him in the house Monday night. He was very tired acting but I didn't notice a limp until Tuesday when I put him back outside with the hens (with out the other roo). A few hours later I noticed him limping some. He would also just lay down in the grass (at first I thought just the warm sun...). I brought him back in and put him in a cage so he wouldn't move around much. I have looked him all over and can't find anything obvious as far wounds on his leg. Once I settle him down I can move his leg around and he doesn't mind a whole lot. He hasn't been eating much though until today when I mixed up some scrambled e**. I will mention up front that this bird was supposed to be vaccinated for Mareks... Here's some details: 1) What type of bird , age and weight. Wyandotte rooster, 28 weeks, 5-6? lbs 2) What is the behavior, exactly. Lethargic, limping on right leg, lays down a lot 3) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. Nothing obvious. He has some scabs on his comb and waddles from previous tangles, but nothing that looks serious to me. 4) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. He got in a fight on Sunday with another roo, but not bad I didn't think. I did change the bedding recently and there is much less now. I wondered if he maybe hurt his leg jumping down from favorite roost? (about 4 feet) 5) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. He hadn't been eating a whole lot of normal food. I have been trying oatmeal and then he really liked scrambled egg tonight. I've been mixing his water 50/50 with Pedialyte 6) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. His poo is runny most of the time. No blood, just more white and more wet than normal. 7) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? I started putting Pedialyte in his water yesterday (50/50 mix). I also fed scrambled eggs and oatmeal for easy high protein meals. I have given him 2 doses of the hypericum I saw others talking about. 8 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? I'd like to treat myself... 9) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. 10) Describe the housing/bedding in use He has lived in a 40sq ft coop with 10 hens and another roo. They free range on all days practical. They have been living on about 10-12 inches of bedding which I recently cleaned out and there was about 4 inches or so. I have since increased that to 6-8" of pine bedding thinking maybe he got hurt from that? I'm new to chickens and have spent a LOT of time reading on this forum but obviously have a long way to go before I know what I'm doing. If anyone can offer any ideas I'd appreciate it. I thought about going to TSC to get some antibiotic to try on him as I don't know what else to do. I know that's not the best blanket treatment but again I'm new and don't know what else to try. Thanks for listening! Brad *EDIT* For some reason when I refer to "scrambled e**" it replaces it with "scrambled rooster"!! Sorry if that scared anyone!!
