I fed my crew Tuesday night...noticed the one big roo Rodger was laying on top of a crate. He didn't get up and come get treats... which made me suspicious. When he hadn't gotten up by the next morning, I picked him up. All was well on the underside of him.... his feet look normal and no thorns....I felt his legs up and there was nothing broken, swollen or different that I could see. But when I put him down to stand up, he promptly fell to the ground and couldn't/wouldnt stand. I put him in the coop for protection, but found him outside the coop but under the run stairs... like he had been forced out. He stayed there for a day and night. Last night I checked him out again... can't find anything wrong with him other than he's getting thin but I don't think he's moving to get any food or water. I crated him with food and water - but I'm clueless as to what else to do. He's not moving on his own... I situated him so that I would know if he moved. He didn't in 14 hours. Any thoughts? I have way too many roos and am in the process of downsizing so this could indeed be a fight injury. I just don't know if I should do anything else.
