    I would bring him inside in a warm dog crate.Provide Eggs and tuna and if he doesn't drink oral fluids should be provided with vitamins in it such as Sav-a-Chick or poultry Nutri Dench.More info will be needed.Does he feel skinny?Does he have any Redness or Abnormalities around his legs?How does his crop feel?What does his poop look like?

    How is your rooster doing?

    As @MasterOfClucker states, more information would be helpful. If you can tell us about his symptoms that would be good.
    What is the little sound that he makes when breathing - is he wheezing, coughing, sneezing, etc.?
    Do you notice any discharge from the eyes/nose?
    A photo of how he is laying down - may be helpful - are his legs splayed out - does he act like he has paralysis?

    Separating him from the flock and giving supportive care as instructed in the previous post would be best. Vitamins or electrolytes in the water - see that he is staying hydrated.
