My cockerel is poorly

Recommended Posts

just wondering if anyone had any advice-my araucana cockerel is a bit wobbley today-have watched him and he seems unsteady on his feet (although not to the point of falling over)-most noticeable when he bends to peck. He is eating and drinking and keeping the girls in line but not really himself. i have checked his feet theres nothing stuck on them and no worms in poo.


Any ideas anyone?

Could he have strained a leg/foot? Pick him up and gently check down each leg/foot for warmth/sensitivity. Or got ear mites/infection (balance loss)? Mites are hard to see, as are infections (!) but sometimes you see gunk around the ear.
