    we have a rooster, now a year old, he grew up with his mom and his brother, once his brother threw him around in their hen house and i am not sure if he hit his head when he was young, but he is always unbalanced. We had to take him out of his coop because there our two rooster liked jumping on him, he now lives in a new coop that we bought him, but i have no idea why he is unbalanced. When he is worried or stressed he is more unbalanced, he has lived alone not seeing his flock and he was doing very good, but he was crowing a lot talking across the yard to the other chickens, so we moved his coop next to the other coops and he seemed very unbalanced and then once he calmed down he seemed better, i am just wondering why he could be unbalanced? It is nothing new just trying to find answers. :idunno:confused:

    My guess would be a head injury as well. I have had special needs chickens too.
