    My little OE blue bantam rooster is lethargic.
    This afternoon the bigger hens were pecking him.
    His comb is flopped over to one side, and he is just listless.
    Any ideas?
    I have separated him and put him in a cage.

    how old is he?

    what is he eating?

    describe his droppings..color and consistency.

    does he feel thin?

    has he been wormed?
    is he showing any symptoms of respiratory illness?
    (wheezing, sticky, swollen, or wet eyes, mucus from eyes or beak)

    do you have any poultry vitamins and electrolytes on hand?

    mix up some cooked egg with feed..(IF he doesn't have runny or bloody droppings)

    Quote:Not old enough to crow yet.
    Eating treats and laying crumble.
    Droppings look just slightly runny. Just slightly.
    Does not feel thin

    I have had him about a week. I dont know if he has been wormed.
    No respiratory signs.
    No vitamins on hand.
