    Our turken rooster is just about a year old and this morning when I went out to the coop his eyes were closed and he wasn't responding very well but he was still breathing he has bloody poop. I beleive it's cocci but i'm not sure. So I put him and the rest of my flock on sulmet and I'm putting him in a big dog crate in the basement and I am putting the sulmet in a syringe and feeding it to him. Is there anything else I can do? He part rhode island red part turken and part barred rock. Please help. [​IMG]

    You have done all you can do. The rest is up to him.

    Sorry for this situation. Hopefully you caught it in time. Good luck.

    I agree with CMV. Continue syringe feeding him the sulmet treated water at least 4-5 times a day. He's got to get enough of the medicated water in him to be effective. Good luck.
