    Hello, for the third week my rooster is showing issues...his comb is partly blue...making strange noise like gassping for air.....no other symptoms..he is strong eating and drinking running and active...i took him to vet she said it is viruse and gave him antipoitics with vitamins...after five days of midicens we still have same issues ....i took him to anther vet who said it is newcastle....for me it doesnt look like it no signs at all ....he is in good sbape stands normally no swallowing no twesting...and his poop is normal too
    All chickens are fine no illness and laying eggs
    Any idea what it could be

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you joined the flock! I would try posting this in the Emergency/Disease/Injury forum to get more help. I believe with New Castle disease that when a bird tests positive they are suppose to be culled. Being a vet it should have been reported if he administered tests to determine it. Antibiotics won't kill the virus it just prevents it from reproducing. With viruses you have to let them run their course and do your best to try and keep the bird healthy and alive. You may want to post pictures here and at the Emergency/Disease/Injury forum to get the most help.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. I agree with Birdbrain - viruses just have to run their course. You will get more feedback once you have posted in the section highlighted by Birdbrain.

    All the best

    I don't know about that disease but, if his comb is turning blue I would think it is a cardiac issue.

    No need to apologise - we all do it and you still got some responses, so nothing to worry about. I hope that all goes well.
