    Morning all

    One of my Col rock cockerels is showing some strange symptoms this morning. Stretching his neck way out, very muted crow, mouth open to breathe

    From everything I can read, sounds like gapeworm (??)

    I have Ivemectin pour on here at the house....is it effective on gapeworm?

    Thanks

    I would make sure he has access to clean water.. He may just have something stuck in his throat.. I find my chickens doing this from time to time but normally clears up after they get a drink, especially since he's only been showing signs for a few hours... If it does not clear it up, then I would go ahead and treat...
