I posted this on the regular wall a little while ago but was advised to post here as well: I have a black tailed Japanese Bantam roo (maybe 2-3 lbs) that has fallen ill for some reason. I read once that they are a cold-hardy breed but apparently they're not as cold hardy as I thought because after the below freezing temps we had 2 days in a row this week, I noticed he was limping Tuesday morning. I brought him inside to warm him but he has gone down hill rather quickly. He has held on for the last 2 days but seems to be on death's door. I don't know what else to do for him, short of "culling"... not my thing. I have him under a 75w light. I have to give him water w/ a medicine dropper bc he can't drink on his own. I have given him electrolytes and karo/water every hour today per vet instructions. He can move his wings and legs (but rarely does), opens his eyes sometimes in response to noise, but his neck will twist around nearly upside down (to the left). If I lay him on his left side, his neck will remain straight. Placing him on his right side, his neck will curl around upside down. I haven't tried poly-visol yet but hope to get to the store tomorrow for some sort of chicken vitamin/booster/something. Any ideas what may have happened to him? The two hens with him are fine but he's a bit smaller than them. They are all said to be about 3-4 years old, according to the guy I bought them from. Oh, and his poop is watery and sometimes has stringy green poo in it. If vitamins don't help (or any suggestions you all might can offer), I may end up having to pay a vet bill for them to just tell me there's nothing they can do for him. I hate to see him suffer but if there's something I can do to help, I want to at least try it. Any help, short of telling me to take him to a vet, will be appreciated!! Honestly, I didn't think he'd make it this long so I may actually end up at a vet tomorrow afternoon/Saturday but hope there's a "home remedy" I can try first! Thanks for your help!
