    If you can, find a vet that will see him. If not, I understand, but it would help if you could answer all of the questions in this link:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/3569/have-an-emergency-disease-please-read-first

    And these as well:
    Has he been dewormed? If yes, with what and when?
    What kind of other birds do you have?
    How long have you had him?
    Has he lost any weight?
    Can you post a picture of him and his poo?
    If you have a scale, weigh him and post his weight.

    The more info you post, the better your chance of getting help.
