    Rooster will not eat or drink. Is in warm tack room but is all puffed up. Any idea what's wrong with him? See pictures.[​IMG]

    Are his toes frostbitten, or do they just look dark in the pictures? Is he having diarrhea or blood in his droppings? What does his crop feel like? Check him for lice and mites, especially under the vent area. Have youj wormed him lately?

    I'll check his toes. He does not have diarrhea or blood, just a lot of white with a little green in his droppings. His crop is really flat, we have been tube feeding him. He was wormed 4 months ago. I will worm him again. Thanks, I appreciate the advice.
