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.
Okay great information. Thanks
What else should I give him for worms?
What does apple cider vinegar do?
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.
Ok good tip
Do you know that he has worms, and the kind (e.g., roundworm, tapeworm)?
