    My 3 year old rooster pumpkin has two ear infections! :hit
    I know this is bad. Cause two years ago my 3 year old rooster Wilbur died from an ear infection in February! We treated Wilbur by cleaning his ear out everyday and putting peroxide in it but it didn't work. What should I do!!! :hit :hit :hit

    My mom thinks we should give him penicillin and someone else said we should do that too. I am going to go do that now. I don't know how old the penicillin is, it's been sitting in our fridge for a few years. [​IMG]

    There aren't any chicken vets around. We gave him the penicillin. The first couple tries the penicillin wouldn't go in him. We switched to a bigger needle and it worked the fourth try. He is going to be sore tomorrow :(
