Welcome to BYC. Your rooster may have wry neck (torticolis.) It can be caused by a head or neck injury, and is a neurological symptom. It is also seen in some vitamin deficiencies, and in in certain diseases. You could try treating him with 400 IU of vitamin E in human soft gels which can be opened and squeezing into a little food. Also give 1/4 tablet daily of a human vitamin B complex tablet crushed into a little egg yolk or scrambled egg. Make sure that he is taking enough water and food, or you will need to hand feed him. Hopefully he will soon be acting more normal.
