    My NN roo Cletus is acting really weird and his comb is starting to turn a purpleish blue color. Is there anything i can do for him. I have him started on Auoromicin(Spelling?). Can he pass this Disease onto my other birds?

    Sounds like he is lacking oxygen. Maybe he has a heart or lung problem. Is he wheezing?

    Blue combs usually mean that he's not getting enough oxygen.
    Is he wheezing? a chicken's breathing should sound like bellows, with no creaks, rattles or rasps.

    I would google lung diseases in poultry to find what antibiotic is best. Sounds like you are giving him one. Also, try the search button above. I am sure there are numerous people in this forum that have experienced this.
