Ok....here I go 5yr old rooster....noticed early in the week he was not himself, last one to come out of coop (very unlike him).....holding his chest funny-instead of walking tall with chest out, he walks kind of slumped and hunched. Was still eating and drinking, staying with his flock. His crow does not sound right......he almost sounds hoarse, but no weepy eyes, no runny nose....no raspy breathing. Yesterday was actually a nice day here and the girls were out in the yard, I noticed the rooster was not....so I went to check and he was down under the heat lamp laying on the ground.....which is so unlike him. He has good color, his crop is not sowllen or gushy. We brought him inside and have him in kennel in our basement, he is not eating and drinking much. I have tried giving him nutri-drench, last night we gave him an injection of penn. This morning he is sitting up looking at me.....I made him some oatmeal with probiotics and gave him some water with electrolytes and vit's......but how do you get them to eat and drink if they won't on their own? one more thing......I noticed since putting him the kennel, his poops are small for him, but I don't think he is eating much. We really love this guy, we have raised him from a peep and do not want to loose him......any advice or ideas would be appreciated!
