Welcome To BYC!

Can you post some photos of your rooster and his poop?
How long have you had him?
What type of food/treats do you feed?
How long has he been unable to stand or walk?
Have you added any new chickens to your flock within the last 30 days?

I would keep him hydrated. Offer him some poultry vitamins that contain B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin E.
Look him over for signs of lice/mites and inspect his legs/feet for any injury, bruising, swelling or infection.
Let us know how he's doing.

update:I did check his feet they seemed fine we put him on the the floor to see if we can notice anything else we notice his one foot wasn't working it seem like his foot stayed closed so we decided to feel around his knees and hips to see if he had anything dislocated I put him in a hammock I made for my chickens if they ever needed it and we don't know what it was but he stood up and now he's walking around but not perfect he seems a little wobbly
