    I have a golden sebright rooster named amazon and today when I was checking on my flock I noticed he looked strange, so I took him in so I could see if he was alright. But when I sat him down I noticed he wasn't standing up so I tried to give him some meal worms, but he still isn't doing anything. I am very worried about him, it snowed last night and he didn't struggle when I picked him up is there anything I can do for him?

    He is a pet chicken so culling isn't an answer

    That's probably it, after a while of being inside he started to walk around a little but he almost gave me a heart attack. Thank you
