    A roo of mine is sick. Not moving around but alive. Still eating, drinking, just not acting like a roo. Doesnt resist being picked up(usually runs). Any suggestions? I have him separated from the others. Still giving food and water. Thx

    What does his poo look like? How is his breathing? How is his weight? (You can check by feeling the wishbone and seeing if it's filled out.) It's good that he's separated.

    Please asap provide info corresponding to the questions posed in the 'sticky' at the top of the Emergencies list of threads. Hopefully this will help folks help you and your roo faster and more accurately. Add any little thing you can think of that could possibly help provide clues.
