    My naked neck rooster is sick this morning. He is lethargic and not eating. I did see him drink water. He had a poo that looked all white and a little runny. His crop is kind of squishy. It doesn't sound like he is having trouble breathing. When I picked him up (he never lets me pick him up without a lot of protesting, but he didn't make a sound), liquid ran out his mouth, but he had just been drinking water so it might just have been that. I have separated him and tried offering him some scrambled eggs, but he just sits there and isn't interested in anything. Can anybody tell me what it could be or what else to look for. He is such a sweet rooster to my hens, I don't want to lose him.

    Sorry about your rooster.
    Maybe you should try taking him to a vet.

    I hope the OP will come back and give us an update on the condition of this rooster.
