URGENT: Rooster's balance gone. Can't walk


Jun 6, 2020
I have a Porcelain D'Uccle rooster. I originally bought him from Cackle Hatchery and he is now about 16 months old. Our flock has no lice, mite, or flea issues. They are clean and well kept.

We found my rooster stumbling around, unable to keep his balance enough to walk. We checked for injuries, and there aren't any. We checked their coop and their free-range area and didn't find anything we know is poisonous.

He is alert and perky but has an acute lean to the left. Even when laying down. His only other symptom is that his skin is a darker red than usual. His crop is normal, and he willingly ate and drank when I offered it to him. I'm suspecting this might be a stroke but I need help here, he's my favorite.
