I know that all sounds kind of crazy...... But I noticed the dark tips on the comb happening this last week in the mornings. It is more prominent early then tends to dissipate. Mr. Mash He also sneezes, not constantly but enough that I noticed it. That, I noticed maybe three weeks ago but with the dry, hot weather the dust has been blowing so I didn't think too much of it. There is no nasal discharge. But combined with the other oddities, I have become concerned. This morning I also noticed a little bit of head shaking and then, walking around randomly looking at the sky! He's a 4 month old Black Copper Marans and is shaping up to be the lead roo. I would hate to lose him so if this is something I need to worry about, I'd like to catch it very early. Notice the dark tips of the comb in the picture above? Otherwise, he is a very happy, healthy bird with a great appetite. You can guess his favorite dish by his name . Oh, and his poops also look normal. I've been putting electrolytes/vitamins in the water since this weather has been just brutal. Any advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
