In the Brooder
Jul 17, 2019
My rooster has arthritis. He is on rimadyl and on tetrasol for respiratory issues as well. Lately he has been hardly eating and will drink. His poop is like yellow green and white, sometimes brown. He is laying down constantly, hunched up and falls asleep. His crop seems to be emptying in the morning and does get bigger. His poop is sticking to his butt. What I'm asking is if he is dying, sick, or if it could be the medication. He did eat some food out of my hand this morning, and it has been really cold. I'm hoping this is just normal. I'm like extremely worried.

Side note: I haven't seen him poop today but I'll post a picture of poop from yesterday.
I also want to add that sometimes he will be alert and even crow.

Hello, I'm very sorry about your rooster. It does sound like he is sick, but I'm not experienced with this so I'll let the experts handle it. Good luck to you and your rooster! :hugs
