    I would definitely recommend isolation, plenty of fresh water. If possible, I would mix vitamins and electrolytes.

    I already had him isolated because I introduced new hens a couple of weeks ago and took him out of the coop so they could establish their pecking order

    Thanks I will try vitamins and electrolytes All my flock has been healthy so far. Going on 10 months now so I'm just not sure what this could be.

    Put "vent gleet," in the searchbox - and compare his symptoms to that.

    I hope your rooster is back to good health soon, the ER members should be able to help you out.

    Best of luck!
