My 9 mo old rooster is worrying me. A couple days ago I noticed he wasn't roosting with my 10 chickens as he ususally does. I saw him trying to hop up to the roost but he couldn't do it. He kept dipping up and down then would try an unsuccessful jump. He ended up sleeping under the roost on the floor, in a corner. The next evening he tried again. I put him on the lower roost but he seemed to be off balance. He slept on the floor again. My son came home from school that day and called me immediately as he saw the rooster lying on its side trying to lift his neck up (he thought he was dead until he saw him move). I told him to separate him ASAP and bring him to the garage, which then he was walking again. He stayed there overnight and I found him the next afternoon roaming with the flock (I left the garage door open before I left for work-he was hidden). We checked his legs and wings for any injuries..nothing visible. Now he seems like his old self but still not jumping to the roost. I was so worried but there wasn't much more that I knew to do for him. We live in NH, still cold, just had daylight savings (trying to think of possible reasons). The coop is pretty secure from predators. Although I did notice a piece of material that is inside covering the open eve, was pushed in. Their roost is connected to that part of the eve. He is a great protector and we all love him, especially his ladies! Has anyone experienced this?
