    I have had this rooster for only two weeks now and he has been doing great. This morning when I let him out he went under the house to sit. I noticed his tail is droopy. His eyes are clear and breathing fine. I did see him eat a little bit but he usually eats a lot in the morning. Here is a picture of his poop this morning which is very different than what it has been. Is this worms or could he have just eaten something in the woods that has made him sick? What should I give him if anything???

    I really can't see anything. Looks like spinach to me. [​IMG]

    Well it definitely isn't normal looking...too runny instead of 'formed'. It looks like he just ate too much green stuff and may have given him diarrhea? Do they free range or did you give them something extra vegetable-wise that may have disagreed with him?

    I let them out twice a day to free range otherwise they are enclosed in the run. I did not feed him anything different. I have him in a dog crate in the house and he is laying down sound asleep. He sure doesn't look like he feels very good. Is there anything I can give him that would make him feel better?

    keep him calm, warm and isolated from the others, try giving him some electrolyte solution to help give him some strength. Any sneezing, runny nose, smells? hopefully he just ate something that did not agree with him

    Thanks so much for your reply. He has no other symptoms except being lethargic. I have not seen any more green poop either. Do you think trying to feed him some yogurt would help? He has been sleeping all day. Thanks again...
