    my silkie rooster has not been acting him self i been looking at him trying to find a problem but didn't see any thing well then today i was holding him trying to comfort him and found that he was all blocked up with poo on the butt so i clean it out and got him settled with food and water. In the beggining i thought he was depressed because he didn't have a girl so then i gave him a girl and he stoped eating a day before i gave him the girl. the question is how do i get him eating again???? for a while i won't be able to reply back for my phone service at my home went out in a storm and won't be back on for a while

    You might have to almost force feed him, if he's not eating anything at all...
    A handfeeding formula that you can buy at the petstores is good.
    Cooked oatmeal, scrambled eggs are also good for him.
