    For the past few weeks my large Wyandotte roster literally smells like vomit. There is really no change in his behaviour other than he has become a wimp and the other roosters pick on him now.... So I have him separated. I have no idea how old he is likely 2 years for sure. Does anyone have any thoughts as to why he smells? He does not have diarrhea or poopy vent. Thanks!

    Is he eating and drinking OK? Does it seem like the vomit smell is from his breath? Or does his whole body smell like vomit. I have never heard of that before.

    Could he have rolled around in something very stinky?

    No he has not had access to roll in anything stinky. He smells of vomit, not his breath, even coming within 2 feet of him you can smell it. He is eating and drinking well... Major pig! LOL!
