Rooster Shaking Head

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi All,'

 

I just noticed my rooster has started shaking his head.  I didn't notice any mites on him and none of his girls are doing it.  His waddle does seem a little discolored but I think it might be a bit of frost bite.  Poor guy puts them rite in the water dish when he drinks.

 

Is there anything over the counter to use for a possible ear infection?  I will take him to the vet if I have to but I would rather avoid the expense if I can.

Sometimes it is ear mites. You can use an eye dropper and ear mite treatment for dogs/cats. One drop each ear. Again in a few days. I am not saying that it is ear mites, but if no other sympoms show up it could be.

For what it's worth, my rooster did that too, after some frost bite. I just figured it must have stung or felt weird and he was trying to shake it off.

 

Hope that's all it is!

We don't see frostbite here. You might have your answer from someone that experienced the same.
