my rooster was acting lethargic yesterday, just standing around with his tail and wings all droopy. He had no intrest in food or water, and was not running around when i went to care for everyone in the morning. I seperated him into a dog crate in the house, gave him an epsom salt bath, and force fed him water every hour or so with a dropper. He looked perkier after the bath while i was watching tv with him on my lap, and put him to bad after giving him a drink. He wasn't interested in any food i tried to give him, so i didn't push it. Crop is emptying fine, and he desn't have external bugs. Not sure about internal. anyways, i can to check on him this morning, and thought he was dead. He was just laying on his side barely breathing. Picked him up and he was compleatly limp. looked closely and he was breathing, but his comb was a dark purple color and he had a small bit of watery discharge coming from his nose. His eyes looked puffy and were half closed. Any help would be apreciated...i really love this little rooster, he is a sweet bantam cochin mix and loves to cuddle. First chicken that actually likes to do that. Thanks for any replies.
