Not sure how old he is, the couple won him at a turkey shoot in November but he sure seems to be in bad shape. Since November he's lived in a 4x 4x 4x ft cage with an igloo dog house. No perches or stretch room. We brought him home last night and he just stands there. He did come out this morning but when it started to rain I had to pick him up and carry him inside. We gave him a mirror for comfort but maybe I have to take it away for awhile. He hasn't eaten anything, he has grain, watermelon, live mealworms. And I haven't seen him drink a thing. I have a hanging dish of water inside his coop, the metal pan behind him, and a yellow bucket full of water. Not interested. He is now standing inside "crying" I swear he's whimpering. His feet seems to hurt him, his feathers are all broken, he's full of lice (I treated this morning with Sevin5). I couldn't get his head treated though. And to top it off this morning he had diarrhea. Tried to give him yogurt, he won't take anything. Right now I just left him to be quiet in his coop. Any suggestions. He seems depressed. Does anyone know what breed he is? He is however, very sweet and his name is Jack.
