    I noticed my 7 month old Silkie Cockerel was not interested on food about 4 days ago, the next day he was standing alone in his pen. Upon picking him up, he felt underweight. Brought him inside. No signs of respitory prpblems, not coccidia. He will eat bread, corn...people food basically but not feed. Thought I saw some mites, so bathed him and treated him again. Just treated last week for worms with Safeguard pellets. I Have Not Given Him Any Other Medications At This Time. His poop has been green...which I know is bile...Here are poop pics from yesterday and today.[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG] first pic is the most recent poop.

    No indication of crop issues,any injury to beak or overgrown beak? Any other rooster keeping him away from food? What type of feed is he on?

    No crop issues, no beak injury, he was in a pen with 3 pullets (and they are very docile ) Feeding 16% Layer with Flock Fuel and Poultry Conditioner mixed in. I noticed even though I bathed him the other day he has accumulated a lot of poop on his tail feathers.
