    I'm new to this list. We live in Orlando, Florida. We have 8 hens and 2 roosters of breeds unknown to us. All are around a year old. All have been well and happy up until a few days ago when the number 1 rooster started to look as if he was having trouble staying awake, he also looks slightly unsteady on his feet and shows signs of losing condition. Does anyone have an idea of what the problem could be and what we should do?

    Hi Chris, welcome to BYC [​IMG] Sorry to hear you're little roo is having problems. Are there any other symptoms? Is he eating/drinking/pooping like normal? Any wheezing? Any discharge?
