Zane, my Barred Rock cockerel, who is 19 weeks old, is seemingly depressed. He's not himself at all. Three days after Hawkeye's death, he seems lost. He isn't ill, nothing has changed except that his father is gone. All day long, he's laid on the ground in one place then he'll move to another. He has not crowed all day. He just seems lethargic and tired. My DH bent down today, held out his hands and Zane, as he often does, walks right between his hands to be picked up. He dozed on my husband's chest for 15-20 minutes on the hammock today, not caring about the girls at all, didnt react much to anything around him. He honestly seems depressed, like he's just noticed that his dad isn't here and probably isn't going to be here anymore. They would always stand side by side and even on occasion, roosted side by side. This evening when the girls were back in the pen and winding down, eating, getting ready to go to roost, I saw Zane sleeping on the ground at the top of the pen. We walked down to the pen and when he saw his human daddy, he perked up and ran to him to be picked up and held. I'm not sure what to do about a depressed rooster, poor baby. He seems just lost without Hawkeye.
