    My beloved rooster has fallen ill! He has all the symptoms for liver disease! His comb went a bit purple around the edges, he has are hard time having bowel movements, he has low energy - he does not even cock a doodle doo and just like it said in the article I read he just started showing symptoms just a couple weeks ago! plus he as overgrown claws/nails which is also a symptom!
    They said the cure was epson salts or wheat bran with buttermilk. Does anybody know any other cures?[​IMG] I'm really worried![​IMG] And I've been searching all over the internet[​IMG] but it keeps talking about eating chicken livers![​IMG]
