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.
Good advice from @Eggcessive

NC also have 4 state labs - Raleigh, Monroe, Elkin and Fletcher/Arden, you might want to contact them to see if they can do some testing to find the cause. Ask them if they can accept swabs to test for Mycoplasma, Infectious Bronchitis and ILT. http://www.ncagr.gov/vet/ncvdl/
Since he is a show rooster, I would not show him again until you find out more information since most respiratory diseases make birds carriers for life - you don't want to contribute to the spread of disease.

One more thing, if you haven't done so, I would definitely take a look inside the beak for any lesions, white/yellow patches, etc.

I'm sorry he is not well, he's beautiful. I hope he starts to get better soon.
