Wheezing, gurgling, coughing, head shaking, diarrhea, problems swallowing their feed, dizzyness, neck and head scratching, general weakness. Some days breathng with open beaks.
It was the same for the rooster.
But the symptoms varied, some days they were a bit better than others.
That sounds similar to Roxby’s symptoms, though I just did a physical exam on him and of two of my other ganders for comparison to him, his grandfather and his uncle.
Both of them have squishy abdomens, nothing stands out really feeling around in there.
Roxby on the other hand has what feels like an egg in there sticking out below his hip bones, and he is 100% a gander.
In other words it’s a swollen air sack, an air sack that’s pushed out of place, his liver or intestine is enlarged or some other organ is, or he has an egg sized mass in there.
Without an X-ray it’s hard to say what it is but that doesn’t feel right.
