    My silkie rooster Earl was fine earlier today, this AM. This evening he is lethargic and weak. You can handle him and that is rare. He does not want food. I have given him water but he just wants to lay down. He is freerange on 2 acres with the rest of my silkies. Everyone else is fine.

    Any ideas. very worried. thanks.

    I don't think you have enough info for me to help. I would assume its something he ate. Maybe an issue with his crop... have you felt it?! Check his skin for welts or bites... maybe something got him while he was out?
