    hiya i dont know if any of you have seen my last post about zeebs who has been making funny noises all day yesterday,heres a link to the noise he was making yesterday

    ill start from the beginning,he started making wierd noises getting worse as the day went on,he only ate a small bit yesterday.some scrambled egg with poultry spice on,and i didnt see him drink at all.we rang the breeder for advice and he said hes trying to crow,hell just keep trying and trying till he gets there,its like trying to get some phlem from the back of his throat,and it will iritate him,it may even knock him out abit,he was very suprised about this as it was as they were adamant after seeing him 2 times it was girl,even tho wed seen him do the deed with one of my females,so we thought ok,it does sound like hes trying to get a noise out,he went to bed with the other 10 at about 8 l;ast night up on the pirch.i went to check on him about 309mins later most of them were asleep,one was snoring,but zeebs sounded like he was snoring but alot worse,more raspier,didnt want to disturb him so left and went to check abit later and he was on the floor.looking very sorry for himself,still making the raspy breathing noise and the wierd sqwuarking noise,so after some advice on here i bought him in,in a dog crate woth food and water,he felt really hot,so i stood him in a bowl of cool water,he wasnt happy with that,ive kept an eye on him all night,and hes stil made the noise through the night,hes not floppy and is very alert,i got up this morning and he is making this wierd noise when breathing kind of like we do when weve got a really bad chest ,heres a link to the video for this noise

    hes stodd up ok and is still very alert,does anyone have any idea what could be wrong,im so worried been up all night panicking hes going to die,im more worried because my next door neighbour had gardeners in and theyve sprayed all my garden and veg patch with weedkiller 3times,each time i quickly washed it all down really soaked it all all the way along the fence,but bzeebs got it on thurs night into my veg patch and im so worried i didnt get it off and hes eaten some,but wouldnt he be alot sicker??when they resprayed friday i lost my temper and pulled all the weeds and grass around the area out as my chickens all just flew to the area,didnt want to take any chances,pleasecan anyone advise me what to do,if there somthing i can buy from the pet shop.anything.im going to ring a vet later for advice,but unfortunatelyat the moment dont have to 70pound call out charge with it being a weekend,and then the fees ontop.xx
