    It looks like Cocci to me..... You can try Terramycin, but alot of people on here like to use Sulmet. You should be able to find both at your local TSC....

    Also you didn't mention what you were feeding him? I alway's start my chicks with medicated chick starter/grower.

    Thats good then. Do you have this roo by himself or with other birds. He needs to be separated from all other's.
