    My cochin roo is really sick it happend over night. Anyone have have any ideas I'm having a hard time figuring what all is wrong. He's not going potty he can't walk and feels thin.
    What could it be? Do you think it's worms? He's been acting like this since friday Am.

    He also had what looked like white spit on his wattles when I went out to give him water.

    Ivermectin/Ivomec won't tackle worms in chickens - you have to use Wazine / piperazine or another poultry wormer. Ivermectin's great for lice and mites, though, which are also bloodsuckers that can cause anemia.
