I tried searching the forum but everything I came across suggested heat-induced panting. This is not that. I have a year-old roo that is the sweetest guy. He is a black silkie. Today I found him in the coop in the corner by himself while the rest of the flock foraged around the yard. His symptoms are: - Constant panting/heavy breathing - Drooping tail - Walks very slowly - Very thirsty - Liquid diarrhea with undigested bits It is not hot outside. Everybody else is just fine. I have felt his crop. It seems normal. It was more full this morning and has gone down by this evening. He ate small amounts of food. I gave him water with nutri-drench, vet rx, and apple cider vinegar (separate doses). He drank everything enthusiastically. The whole flock recently had 2 rounds of ivomec for scaly leg mites and there's DE for dusting. About a month ago I lost my other silkie roo who was a year older. He was also panting but I didn't notice he wasn't feeling well until 2 hours before he died. At that point he was barely walking. So I don't know if he had the same symptoms. His breathing was labored and slowed gradually until he was gasping. It was awful and I was heartbroken. Since then, I've been even more diligent about keeping my eyes on every one of my flock of 12. I'm afraid he might not make it through the night. I didn't have the strength to necropsy the last one, but if this one goes too, I'll do what I have to figure this out and try to make sure it doesn't happen again. So, either way, I'd really like some advice.
