    Hello,

    I have a 2 year old rooster who's just started acting very lethargic and has watery green poops. He started crowing strangely a few days ago, almost like he had laryngitis. I've brought him inside and he's in a dog cage in the basement. He won't eat or drink much and looks like he's getting weaker. What could be wrong and what should I do?

    Thank you!

    Kathleen

    barely eating or drinking and the little bit of poop he's producing is just watery and very green. He seems a little off balance too

    Watery green poop is not good. He needs food and water. If you want to tube feed him casportpony will help you. pm her.
