    Yesterday my usually healthy 1.5 year old rooster started displaying signs of illness. Non movement, heavy breathing, sitting in corner inside the coop. I didn't really expect him to make it through the night. He did make it outside today but is still not acting healthy. His comb is limped to one side, his tail feather are drooping. I've seem a few posts on Coccidosis and being able to get OTC medicine from the feed store. Any one have suggestions on the best course of action to take with him. Thanks in advance!
