    My rooster lost his crow a few weeks ago which we thought was overuse
    Now he seems to be panting... gapeworms? Upper respiratory infection?
    No poultry vets will come to house and the stress of bringing him anywhere would be detrimental
    I am worried
    All other hens are fine
    Any advice useful
    He is mean and we can't get close to him
    I am new to this site but have a video of him

    I think the best place to get some help for your rooster is on the Emergencies/Diseases forum, there are some very knowledgeable members there that could be able to help.

    Good luck, hope it's nothing to serious.
