    [​IMG] Our bantam rooster has been listless and not crowing for about 3 days. He's sleepy, seems weak, not eating a lot (even treat scraps) and feels thin. HELP! We've only had chicks for a year now.

    There is no harm in giving a rooster antibiotics, so I would start there.

    Also make sure there are no lice or mites. Has he been wormed?

    Quote:We've just checked for parasites on him and a few of our other girls(4 are new to our flock) - nothing. What is worming? He did just eat a small amount of a protein packed home baked bran muffin.
