    This happens to my Phoenix rooster unusually when the weather changes and he gets a runny nose and I was told it is just lack of oxygen
    This has been going on for 3 years now and it doeant affects him in any way I just keep them in a large indoor enclosure where I can control the temp and as far as I'm aware none of his off spring have this
    (My rooster is 6 years old)
