There is a slight possibility that he has an alpha strep infection in his heart. If he is showing signs of infection you might want to get an antibiotic that would treat both. It would explain his symptoms.Mag has been seen by Gloria. She doesn't know what is wrong with him. She doesn't have the equipment to do the type of examination that might show what the problem is. While she is wonderfull, she is also honest and this is a rural vet practice in Spain.
She thinks like I do that it may be a heart problem. She has given me contact details of a game fowl keeper who has apparently a great deal of knowldege and used to fix up the cock fighting cocks years ago. The problem is he isn't relpying to his phone, or email.
There is one odd thing about Mag; he's moulting, but it's a retarded moult. He got so far and nothing else seems to be happening.
It's also possible he has an infection of some sort.
In metropolitan PA you would also be lucky to find a vet that would treat a chicken. Just saying.The problem is with internal problems like this, as you know, is the vet not only has to have a great deal of experience in dealing with such things, they also need an awful lot of expensive equipment to give a correct diagnosis.
This is rural Spain and I'm lucky to have a vet that will even see a chicken.
They get through a lot!Wow. It's moving right along.
