My 2.5 year old NHR rooster was perfectly normal when my DH got home tonight. DH said that when he got home Danielle came out of his enclosure, he ran out like normal and went over to the fence to see the hens on the other side like he does everyday. Then he went over to a bag of ice and lowered himself onto it. He hasn't been able to get up since. My DH brought him in the house and set him in front of a fan and gave him some water. His color is good, but he's squatted with his head down. I tried to stand him up but he's wobbly and is sort of balancing himself on his haunches and he keeps one wing out for balance. He stays in a 10x6x6 kennel with a shade/sunguard on top, he has a pine sleeping box he goes into at night-it's well ventilated and his bedding is pine shavings. He eats the Dumor chicken feed and lots of treats, but he's not overweight. I can't imagine what the heck is going on. I called the avian vet but she charges $200 just to walk in the door and that's with no treatment. After the $300 vet bill for my dog last week, I'm a little tapped right now. I don't know what to do. I can take him to another vet tomorrow which I will do, but in the meantime, can anyone shed any light of what could be wrong? Could it be the heat? It was 97 degrees today, heat index 100+. I live in Charlotte, NC Anything would help!!!! Thank you.. Liz Right now he's squatted and his legs are almost straight out in front of him. I can see his little toes peeking out from under his breast. Would it help if I posted a pic?
