    unsure what you mean by this

    is he old? sickly? what else is going on?

    More details would be helpful. Other than dropping his head, is he eating, drinking, pooping differently? Any changes in his normal behavior?

    Please post in full detail - photos are helpful too! The ER folks need the whole picture to arrive at a diagnosis and/or advice.

    G’Day from down under 3CoopedInn [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope that your rooster is OK.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.
