    Hey, Karen....a better place to post this would be the forum in this link https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
    You will get more responses there. Could be something minor but it could also be serious. I'll let the experts there decide what they think. When you repost, leave as much detail as possible. Shaking his head like he is trying to dislodge something? Or that he has something itching on his head, etc. As many details as you can come up with. Good luck to you and your roo.

    Thank you, he hit his head on the way down from the roost bar. New bars and he hit the door with his head I moved the water and now there plenty of room for him to get down.
