    My black copper maran is acting really lethargic. He has had watery poop shooting out of his butt and we picked him up today and there was liquid coming out from his beak. He is eating fine and everything. I don't know what could be wrong and should I take him to the vet.

    Welcome, sorry about your find!

    At this point, where he is having problems at both ends.. I would take him to a vet!

    And, let the folks you got him from know about this. Maybe they didn't know..maybe they do, but they need to have their flock stay put..no more placing or selling! They need to know!

    Also, separate him from your own flock! Until he is well. Good luck!

    He is probably very dehydrated - it would be best to take him to a vet - this is something that will bring him down very fast.

    [​IMG] I'm glad you joined our "flock!"

    I'm sorry about your sick rooster. [​IMG]I would suspect an infection or internal blockage. If you haven't already, I'd recommend posting in the Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures section.

    Good luck with him!
