    Quote:Alright because I posted about a White d'Uccle rooster I have that wasnt acting right (he would stand really tall arch his neck like he was going to crow but his entire body shook) I picked him up because a couple of people were saying he has something stuck in his throat an he is totally burning up!!!

    my first thought is that it could be an infection. has there been any discharge from the nose or mouth? Perhaps someone can reccomend a broad spectrum antibiotic to help. perhaps an inti-inflammatory?
