    FourteenChicks Chillin' With My Peeps

    My young rooster is sick and I don't know how to help him. He is living with four little hens all from the same place except one. They are all healthy it's just Dudley. He is inside with a little bit of water

    Inspect Dudley for external parasites especially around the vent area where it's warm and moist. He also may need to be wormed. Are there any respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, bubbly eyes, gurgling, head shaking, wheezing? What's his poop look like...color and consistancy?

    He keeps shaking his head and his poop is very runny and white in the middle (sorry for this description but when I saw it it looked like white cheese[​IMG])

    If he's young, like under 8 months old, I would treat him for coccidiosis right away with Corid or Sulfadimethoxine.
