    Have you added any to your flock recently? Is your rooster eating/drinking ok? Does his poop look normal? I have seen chickens pick on a bird they knew was sick...long before I had noticed signs of her illness. I would keep him separated for a bit to ensure he seems healthy.

    No new chicks
    It has been raining the past few days.
    He is in a cage inside my house.
    When he was isolated by the others. I immediately brought himinside. Another member told me to go get him Bovidr from TSC. He has watery poop now, and hasn't moved from the perch. The poop has formed stool, yet clear surrounding it. I didadd 1tsp of Apple Cider vinegar when I fixed his cage inside.
    He did eat a little.

    Yes electrolytes is a good idea. Also maybe give him some cooled scrambled eggs for a little extra protein. Has it been really hot there? As for keeping him separated don't worry about him being lonely for a few days. It is best for him at this point to protect him. I believe the medication the other member suggested is a vitamin supplement and I would say that's a good idea.

    He's beautiful [​IMG]
    Could have been heat stroke and the others noticed him weak. I think if he is perching fine/eating drinking/pooping then he is not too bad. Give him a day or two to gain some strength and maybe take him off his perch for a bit so you can see if he is walking ok. I personally wouldn't put him back with the others until you know he is strong and acting normal. For his sake and for the rest of the flock.

    Well he doesn't like me 2 much he loves the husband. I made him some eggs and electrolyte water.He loves music.At least if I try to pick him up and he starts squawking at me like usual that would be a good sign.

    I will keep you updated.His name is Mohawk he was a day old. 4-2-16. I'm not even sure if he is a he. I don't care either way.

    It's confirmed he can't stand me. I picked him up and as usual he started squawking and moving those feathers like get away from me woman. No diarrhea healthy poop. He was so mad. He didn't get back on the perch and started pecking the floor. I took the scrambled eggs outta the plate and he started munching away. I will keep him in the house for the next few days.
