    It's hard to make a definitive statement on what he has if you can't get a fecal test. Any vet that does it should be able to run one really.

    As for what you can do. What are you feeding him? Maybe it is so hot that he is only drinking water. Try some fresh chilled fruits to see if he eats thoes. I suspect that he might not have been eating due to the heat and that he is drinking too much water. But don't take the water away. They don't really have a better way to cool down. You can try putting a fan on him or give him chilled bottles to lay against. What about the rest of the flock?

    It seems to me like it could be the heat. They drink more and pee more.
