    My JPanese bantam Roo seems to have something stuck in his throat, found like this after twenty minutes after scratch grains were thrown out to them. Keeps stretching his neck up to breathe, every now and then he coughs and splutters trying to get it up. Has drank a heap of water. I have him isolated inside in the warm. Can I give him paraffin liquid to help oil it down? Any other suggestions welcomed please?

    Another one did die two days ago but she was three or four years old and appeared to just die in her sleep, with no prior symptoms. I don't think it's related. I am sure he is choking on something.
    Alex.

    [​IMG]. Now he has coughed up a chunk of flesh!!! Still calm, not distressed but has coughed a few blood streaks on his newspaper. Stopped gurgling but still stretching neck to breathe. He's my favorite. I don't want to cull him. Doesn't seem in pain.
