I was hesitant to put this in the emergencies subforum since there's nothing obviously wrong with him, but I'm starting to worry that my rooster isn't getting enough to eat. His comb is still nice and red, he hasn't lost any feathers, he's lively and behaving normally. He just isn't eating nearly as much as any of my hens are. It's now 2 PM (I let them out 7 hours ago) and his crop is still basically flat, while my hens have very obviously been eating. He's done this on and off for awhile now, a few days ago he ate quite a bit and his crop looked like a racquetball but now he's back to eating little. It's weird, and I'm worried about him. I can offer him food from my hand and he'll excitedly take it, but it just seems that he isn't eating much when I'm not there to do that. I've only had this group of chickens for about four years and I'm inexperienced, so I'm sorry if I'm making a big deal over nothing. My rooster is easily my friendliest bird, I love him a lot and absolutely do not want to lose him. I'm just not very knowledgeable. Like I said, he looks very healthy, he's acting normal and his poop looks normal. Where should I go from here? . In a thread I made a couple weeks ago I was told they'll eat when they're hungry, but like this? I hope he just starts eating normally again on his own, but I don't want to wait for him to start to waste away to get to a vet. Maybe I'm overreacting, but I don't know. Any input is greatly appreciated.
