    How old is he, and what does he eat on a daily basis? Have you ever used a coccidiosis preventative with your birds?

    That is not a proper diet, and is likely the reason his droppings appear as they do. Feed 16-18 % formulated feed for poultry. Leave oyster shell free choice for the hens. Supplement water with a poultry vitamin-electrolyte-probiotic soluble powder 3 days a week. Corid (Amprolium) is an anti-coccidial commonly used as a preventative and treatment for poultry. Valbazen should be dosed .08 cc per pound of bird. Birds are generally dosed twice, ten days apart.

    Yes, he will if he's hungry. If you continue feeding him what you stated, he will suffer from malnutrition/anemia, his immunity to disease will become compromised, and he will eventually die from that.
