My Favorelles Rooster, Samson, is around 9 months old. Last night, my husband commented that he noticed that he was acting funny. Kind of staggering all over the place, could mate with a hen, shaking his head, and didn't go up to roost. When I expressed alarm, he added that he hadn't roosted the previous night but didn't mention it. So this morning I spent some time observing him. He is walking, eat, and drinking, but seems to be moving quite slow, and almost toppling over from time to time. he will walk a little and then it looks like one of his legs will give out. He usually catches himself but a few times he appeared to be just laying on the ground. He also has a very poopy backside. It's still very cold in the Northeast and I had attributed that to freezing conditions. It warned up today and I was going to snag him and isolate him but he looked like he was going to dust bathe and I thought it might help with the dirty bottom. My next step is to put him in a cat carrier until my husband gets home and we can I inspect him. I've also noticed that his beautiful tail feathers are looking pretty sad, like he's lost a few and the remaining ones are limp and stringy. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
