    I have seen this yellow discharge from my chickens but never from a rooster. I cannot find any info on it so do not know how to proceed. Any info will be helpful or links to carry to the next level of learning Thank you.

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    You might consider posting some pictures of where the discharge is coming from and any other symptoms. I will request your thread be moved to the ER forum. Good luck.

    I inherited him from someone who could not care for him.. he supposedly just had bumble foot but within a few days he developed the yellow leakage from his Cloaca/backend and where he was ravenous in eating he hardly eats at all. His discharge is yellow/white mucus that drips constantly.

    It sounds like he has vent gleet. Give this article a read and start working on treating him. Obviously, he should be kept in quarantine away from your flock.
