Sunday morning my wife and I walked outside to check on the chickens when we noticed her buff orpington rooster laying on his side. He is only 7 months old. Figuring he may be experiencing heat stroke or heat exhaustion he was brought inside. Monday morning he was no better. Monday evening after I got home from work my wife and I started giving him fluids with a syringe. He was given a mixture of pedialyte and pedialyte mixed with water. He was so week he could not hold his head up. For food we gave him gerber baby food. Tuesday he was a little stronger. We started giving him cat food, the moist meat chucks that come in the foil packages, gerber baby food, pedialyte and a scrambled egg. Wednesday is pretty much feeding himself. Still getting moist cat food chunks, pedialyte with water and a scrambled egg. I put some hen scratch in front of him while he was laying on the bathroom floor and he was able to feed himself. He is getting stronger. He went from not being able to pick up his head to being able to feed himself. He still does not want to put any weight on his foot. I checked for bubble foot and did not see a black spot. Both feet look identical. He has been getting enough food to poop. My wife and I have been taking turns washing him off with warm water. He is kicking himself around in a circle on the floor, but it not making an effort to stand. One thing I am worried about it seems he has lost a lot of weight. His breast bone is sticking out. The chickens are free range, and have a couple of acres to forage on. My wife and I give them hen scratch and laying pellets. I do not understand why he is so skinny and weak. We have been having daytime temps in the mid to upper 90s for the past few weeks. But the chickens have plenty of shade.
