My Blackie's been doing this for a few months now, and seeing as he's still up and kicking, I don't think it's an emergency, I'm just curious if it's normal or if I should be worried... Every now and then when he's breathing, he kinda makes a noise like his "nose" is stuffed up... I wish I could imitate it by typing it out, but that's the best way I can describe it. He doesn't do it with every breath, and it happens more when I pick him up and such, but it happens several times a day for a few months now. He has no discharge, fever, lethargy, excess sneezing or any other symptom of illness, just his occasional "stuffy-nose" breathing. So, any ideas as to what could be causing it, or what the problem could be? Should I be worried? And if I should, what can I do to fix it? ETA: 1) What type of bird , age and weight- 7 month old Silkie cockeral...not sure of weight... 2) What is the behavior, exactly- Stated above. 3) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma.- N/A 4) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation.- No idea. 5) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all.- I dunno exactly what it's called, but it's your standard chicken-food that our local mill grinds up. And he gets the occasional snack. Oh and he drinks the well-water we drink. 6) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc.- His poop is normal. 7) What has been the treatment you have administered so far?- Nothing. 8 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet?- I wanna fix it myself. 9) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help.- N/A 10) Describe the housing/bedding in use.- House chicken in large rabbit cage in my living room with pine-shavings for bedding.
