I noticed last night my 11 month roo is a bit off colour. He went to bed early last night and slept with his head under his wing. Today he was not his energetic self, still walking around, watching his girls,sleeping at times standing up with his chest puffed up.
I haven't seen him eat or drink much today.
I have caught him and put him in crate. He was pretty hard to catch so still has some energy.
His droppings on the poop board from last night are firm and looks like undigested green grass in it.

Today droppings
Any advice please, I have put Cydectin on him this afternoon and added Amprolium to his water.

Whatever it was he is back to normal now.
I did Cydectin him and did all the others that night.
After a close inspection of the poop board with a light I did see wiggly things in their poop.
He took a day or too to recover full energy and his droppings where much better although still a bit greenish.
So thank you all for your replies.
