I have a Deluce Rooster that's ~1 yr old. After seeming very healthy, he suddenly fell over and couldn't get up. He'd supposedly been vaccinated for Mericks disease but is acting as though he has it. He's been quarantined from his hens, however, I need to know what to do for him. Ive made pedeolites (sorry about the spelling) and am planning to give him polyisol w/o iron this afternoon. Ive made him mash but so far he hasn't eaten any. He allows me to hold him, but is very difficult to force feed. He has great control over his head - moving it out of line from the spoon and kicks relatively well. Since he's small ~1 lb, I use a towel and have been unhurt to date, thankfully. Is there anything else I could do to help\cure him? … read more
