What are his symptoms?

Give him a good deworming! Mix in diatomaceous earth with his feed (it would do the other birds no harm to eat it as well!) and give him pumpkin seeds and melon seeds. If he is battling a worm burden he will crave this stuff. Also a capful of apple cider vinegar in his water is a nice tonic for them. Chop up a clove of garlic and offer it to him. All of these are good vermifuges. Best of luck! Our little serama rooster was displaying the same symptoms in the autumn, and after a good deworming was back to his aul cheeky self again.
