Rooster not breathing well - Page 2

post #11 of 16

well if his crow is still pathetic sounding.... he could be trying to stretch his vocal cords out more to sound better?

 

how often does he do the head shaking?  (5 times a minutes, 1 in 5 minutes?)    cause i am almost ready to read my book on neruological diseases....

since you have the bird and can observe other symptoms i recommend you reading this. it is the most detailed poultry information i have found (without buying a poultry text book)

 

you might want to double check the Newcastle disease descriptions...

it doesn't sound like a bacterial infection.

He shakes his head after he gasps for air. He shakes it three or four times over about five minutes. He gasps for air about ten or twelve times a day. But even when he's not gasping, he breaths through his mouth.

I know little about chicken diseases, but the symptoms of gasping, breathing through mouth and scratching at his nostrils makes me wonder if he has something wrong with his sinuses.  Could they be blocked or perhaps even not developed properly?   An upper respiratory problem?  Just throwing ideas out there.  Good Luck!  He is beautiful.

Tylan and denagard help with CRD or respitory issues. It is hard saying what it is??  Good luck!

I started feeding him medicated chick starter yesterday. He is not breathing through his mouth this morning. The color around his eyes is getting a little brighter but his comb is still pale. I haven't been able to get a Qtip down his throat to check for gapeworm. I guess I am afraid of hurting him. He does look a little better this morning though.
