    I have a 7 year old easter egger rooster that hasn't been doing well lately. For the last few days, he has been really sluggish. For the last couple of days, he would follow his one hen around the yard, and then lay down in the grass when she stopped. Today he barely had the energy to go outside the coop door. He also stinks really bad. Anybody have any ideas?

    Well, Big Red had to be put down. His whole underside was covered with maggots due to a huge infection.
