    That is one sad looking rooster. Is it an infection? Almost looks like pus.
    A more experienced person will respond, but perhaps you can add some more information.
    How was your friend keeping the rooster? It does not look like a new illness and the broken/lost feathers are in interesting locations. Was the rooster kept in poor conditions?
    How old is he?
    Is he eating OK? Is he behaving normally? (scratching around, crowing, etc?)

    Some vitamin supplements, scrambled egg and quality feed mix look very necessary for him for a good couple of weeks.
    Plus a nice calm stress free environment. All goes to helping his immune system.
    Poor little thing.

    it doesn't seem an infection

    my friend bought it to he said it's a gift. he was in poor condition but now i keep him alone and give him lots of food and water with vitamins
    How old is he?
    he seems not that old depending on his legs
    Is he eating OK? Is he behaving normally? (scratching around, crowing, etc?)
    yes he is now eating good and crowing all the day but he can't walk fast or run from me he looks tired

    Some vitamin supplements, scrambled egg and quality feed mix look very necessary for him for a good couple of weeks.
    i will do that
    thanks for your replay
