    Necropsy

    What is wrong with his eye???

    Damn. My little rooster is gone. Hope you are in a better place. I was talking about it with a buddy of mine. He said my bird had a respiratory infection that blocked his stomach and lungs. Gasping for air the last few days he was here with me. 😭😭
