    sounds like it could be the heat. Bring him in and do a good search for anything that could be wrong. Separate him in a dog carrier and let him cool off. Provide cool water with EXTRA vitamins and electrolytes. (gatorade)

    Is he lethargic? Sometimes they do flop over and take a sun bath or just relax with the leg stretched out. I know it looks like they're dying. But pale comb? I'm thinking internal and/or external parasites.

    Hey, by the way, check his vent area for maggots.

    Checked his vent no maggots. Wormed him a couple days ago and now his comb is a little darker.
