    Can someone please help me out. I have 3 sultans that seem weak and sleeps all the time. They were fine 3 days ago and now they sleep and rarley move around. I have to put them by the water so they will drink. Every once in a while they will try to move but seems to hurt them.

    I hope somebody with experience with Sultans responds to your post, because I am having trouble with one of mine, too. I have five that are a few months old, and my biggest (non-dominant of two) roo is suddenly not acting right. He will eat and drink but holds his tail down and sits off to himself. No one seems to be picking on him or anything like that, and the Sultans have their own coop and run. I know they are not the hardiest of birds, but they are so beautiful, I had to have some and they have done so well til now.

    Mine are only 4 weeks old and they are adorable and I would hate to lose them.
