I have a Rhode Island Red Rooster about 16 months old that in the last few weeks has started to appear sick, as you can see by the picture his comb has darkened, he is listless and has stoped crowing. He is in a pen with inside and outside areas with 7 hens and 11, 2 month old babies, the hens have started to pick on him at times. his droppings seem normal, his appetite has decreased and he stays by himself most of the time. Just a few weeks ago he was the king of the roost and now I am concerned, please help.
