My banty rooster is about 10 months old and always the 'life of the party' until 2 days ago. He hasn't crowed in over 2 days, just lays in the 'play pen' and tonight let me pick him up with no complaints (usually he fusses a lot if I try to pick him up). Something isn't right and I am very worried about him. I put some 'goodies' in the coop this morning and he just ignored them and just laid there. I am very worried about him. My 5 hens are doing fine but he sure isn't and I am very upset as I don't know what to do for him - but sure do not want to lose him. I've raised him since he was 2 days old and he, too, is one of my 'babies'. Please send any info that would be helpful to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for any help I can get.
