Did the vet actually see your rooster or just advise on the phone? It could be he tried to swallow something that got stuck. It could be a crop issue. It could be a respiratory infection. It could be a combination of any of these. Check in his beak for foriegn objects. Check his crop in the morning before he gets a chance to eat to determine if it emptied properly during the night. If not is it hard or squishy?
Did the vet reccomend the Tylan?
This is copy/pasted from google:
"Dosing orally, is normally 1/2cc for standards, 1/4cc for smaller chickens, 1/10cc for chicks. Because of the time it takes to see improvements in the chicken, you can dose orally 5-7 days, but not longer. Injecting with tylan 50 is normally 3-5 days."
I hope you can find an answer quickly.

Yes a vet at the NC State Agriculture Dept watched the video. We have no Vet close. I just posted a video from today to show the difference. She suggested giving the Tylan injections and I’ve done that since Friday.
