    Thank you for rescuing! A lot of cockerels get abandoned as being less desirable.

    Yes poor fella was pinned up and the water for him was nasty. I hope that my girls adapt to him being around. He ate for 30 minutes when I got him home and drank water for awhile. He has loose stool. Will he be okay you think?

    Likely malnourished. I would treat him for worms and keep him under observation for a while to protect your flock. Apple cider vinegar in his water wouldn't hurt either.

    Treats for coccoidosis which runny loose poo is a symptom of as it is bad bacteria in the intestinal tract which dirty water could easily cause.

    Do you know that he has worms, and the kind (e.g., roundworm, tapeworm)?
