    Our rooster, Frankie, abouit 4 1/2 weeks old, isn't looking so good. He's not eating much and his activity level has dropped to near zero. He sleeps all the time, even when holding him.

    Does anyone have any suggestions about what I might do? I think he's dying, and there may be nothing I can do, but I don't want to overlook any possibities.

    Thanks,

    Sorry about your little guy. Im pretty new here but there is a section called "Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures" you shoud check out and post this thread there with a better result maybe.

    I am so sorry about your chick. I don't know really how to help you and hope you are getting more answers in the other section. Is his poop normal?
