Hey, I'm new to this forum and I'm in need of a bit of advice...I recently noticed my rooster's nostril was clogged tightly with dirt. I don't know how long it's there but judging by how tightly it's packed in, probably at least a few months. I don't even know how he got that much dirt in his nose in the first place?? It's not bothering him at all and he's acting normal but he keeps scratching his nose trying to get it out and he's blind on the clogged side so he never quite reaches the nose but instead scratches off all the skin around it. I read a few other threads/websites and I heard peroxide works wonders. Only thing is, I can't get him to hold still for more than 5 seconds so I'm scared of using peroxide in case it gets into his mouth (he also tries to eat any cotton/paper towels/syringe he sees) so I've been trying to soak it in saline solution every day and then seeing if it will loosen up so I can pry it out with a toothpick or my finger. It's been a week already and the clump of dirt isn't loosening at all and I'm at a loss as to what to do. Does anyone know of either a way to make him hold still so I can apply the peroxide, or another way of getting the dirt out? Unfortunately, I can't find a vet in my area that will take chickens either... Thanks a lot!
