    I have a rooster which seems that he cant crow properly he tries but the sound he emits is husky like person with asthma. He's eating and drinking normally from what I can see. What could be the problem?

    Thanks, Quailsk

    How old is the rooster? Sometimes young ones take time to develope their crow.

    Actually im not too sure ive hear him him crowing properly before however. He's only been doing this for a day can they get sore throats as such?

    Thanks, Quailsk

    Yes, I've heard of roosters getting sore throats, I would just leave it for a while and see if it gets better, if he is behaving normally then it's probably nothing to worry about
