My son is in 4 h he went in August to the county fair and he took the salmon favoerrolle in for exhibit and show well he placed fifth place in showmanship this was his first time ever he had not met his teacher or had none one tell him or teach him what to do I googled everything I could and taught him some my self. But any ways it is now November and and things have been going good with his specialty chickens intill now his cockerel was born in April and is 7 months now on November 17th he was acting different he couldn't walk couldn't hold his head up or neck up couldn't eat. I went straight to the feed store and got VetRx and Oxytetracycline antibiotic I have gave him the VetRx the first day and since then I have been gave him antibiotic every day for 14 days it says. Today is the 21st and he is eating and drinking through the hole day slowly on his own , he can now hold his head up and his neck up better then a couple of days ago but he is trying to walk but he wobbles while he try's to walk . He is my sons favorite cockerel . We are worried about him eye make sure he has access to food and scratch all day everyday and we give him mil worms and and treats also he weighs 4 pounds at seven months is this under weight also ? I have him in a medium pet carrier with a old soft pillow case and a heating pad and food and water I let him out to try and walk during the day I also play with his food to get him to eat we also give him attention and wash his but a lot to make sure he is clean. I just can't figure out why he is having troubles walking . I have a short video I just can't figure out how to load it on this forum from the app. I love this forum I always find everything I need to know her or an idea. He is doing alittle better just can't walk good and doesn't eat as I would like.
