So, a little background: I got this guy from a friend of mine when he was 3 years old. He's been my #1 guy for the past 3.5 years. Last winter I came to the coop one day to find him walking around the run like he was drunk. He also had a wobbly head. I love this rooster, and didn't have the heart to cull him. But, he looked like he was suffering, so I called my little brother to come and do the deed. By the time my brother had gotten here (about 15 minutes), Mr. Red was back to mating the hens and telling everybody what to do. Strange. He was fine the rest of the winter and has continued to be fine, until today. I went back this morning and let everyone out, and handfed treats to everyone as usual (including him-he looked great). I just went back to collect eggs and found my other rooster and the hens attacking him. His lone, original hen that came with him was frantically trying to defend the poor guy, and taking quite a beating for it herself . So, I scoop up Mr. Red and head to the house as fast as I can. With Ethyl screetching and cursing me out the whole way . I tried to shut the door on her, but she wasn't having any of that. Now they are both in the house, snuggling under the heat lamp. I've given Mr. Red a couple of drops of poly-vi-sol w/o iron, put some vitamins in their water, and made them a mash of gamebird feed, yogurt, and water. Is there anything else I can possibly do? I've checked them for mites (of which I found none, they are just finishing up treatment for scaley leg mites though), they were wormed recently(we just stopped tossing out eggs), and no one else is exhibiting these symptoms. Is this some kind of neurological thing that's come about with old age? Or is that just it: he's old (it is rather cool today-maybe the cold is getting hard on him)? Sorry for the novel, but I love this old fella and really want to do what's best. He is at least standing now, although a little unsteady. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
