SICK ROOSTERS
[Return to Topics]

HI MY NAME IS JUAN I`M A NEW ROOSTER BREEDER . I RECENTLY POSTED A MESSAGE NAMED SICK ROOSTER AND I HAVEN`T HAD A RESPONSE . MY SITUATION IS THAT I HAD A ROOSTER THAT WAS DRAGING HIS LEFT WING . I THOUGHT THAT HIS WING WAS BROKEN BUT IT IS NOT BROKEN . HIS FACE GOT ASHY AND PURPLE AND HE HAD NO BALANCE, HE GOT VERY THIN . THEN A COUPLE WEEKS LATER ANOTHER ONE OF MY ROOSTERS GOT THE SAME AS THE FIRST ROOSTER.NOW ITS WORSE BECAUSE THEY CANT WALK AND WHEN THEY TRY TO WALK THEY FALL . THEY LAND ON THERE BACKS ,THERE FEET UP IN THE AIR AND THEY STAY LIKE THAT BECAUSE THEY CAN`T GET THEM SELFS BACK UP. EACH ROOSTER HAS HIS OWN CHICKEN COOP AND HIS OWN CHICKENS . SO THIS IS NOT DUE BECAUSE OF FIGHTING . I HAVE DIVIDERS BETWEEN THE COOPS, I GIVE THEM VITAMINS EVERYOTHER WEEK . I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO OR GIVE THEM TO CURE THEM . I SURE WOULD HATE TO KILL THEM SO IF ANYONE KNOWS WHAT I SHOULD GIVE THEM AND OR WHAT THEY GOT PLEASE EMAIL ME BACK THANK YOU .

No hope for em sounds like mareks disease. Slaughter them and properly dispose of the carcasses. Clean th ecoops good and sterilize before getting anymore chickens
