    Help me!
    My rooster has an obstruction in his windpipe! I have been treating him for respiratory illness but am now convinced it is an obtrusction. His eyes are clear, no drainage, but breathing is labored as though he is suffocating. He is as active as his breathing allows, eating, drinking, attentive etc but he gasps for every breath and has a "chirp" upon inhalation. What in tarnation do I do here!

    Have you tried look down his mouth to see if anything is in there? Have you done a search on gape worm?
