    My rooster is not feeling well, he is a four year old Dark Cornish. He has lost weight is still eating a little and weak, his comb is bluish and he has some white scabbing around his eye. will try to get some pictures of him tomorrow.

    Her is a picture of his head. This did start with the cold snap as it got down to 20 at night here and he is getting old.

    wow! not looking good at all. How about a heat lamp and yogurt and yolks? Maybe a tad of sugar in water? So sorry!

    Rooster is doing much better, I believe it was moldy pellet feed, the rain was leaking into a feeder in the next pen and he was reaching through and eating it instead of his own. [​IMG]
    Thanks for the thoughts and wishes. [​IMG]
