Hi, I have a recently acquired big beautiful black minorca rooster. He is around a year old. He had been raised in a cage for most of his life so the unsteadiness seemed to make sense at first that his legs just hadn't had a chance to develop. He frequently shakes his head, falls down, sleeps ALOT, face down completely out. At first I just thought these were quirks, but his unsteadiness is getting worse. He will fall down frequently after losing his balance and can't get up for a minute or two. All his other eating, drinking, ranging seem normal. Poop seems normal from what I've seen. I've had hens that had Mereks, but this seems like something else. Maybe neurological? Any ideas anyone??? I love this guy, would hate to lose him... Also, he really is quite large. The largest I've ever seen. He supposedly came from a reputable breeder of show birds, perhaps this is way she dumped him??? Any help would be appreciated!
