I have been reading and researching like crazy, my wife's favorite rooster and the very first chicken we hatched (George) seems to be showing sings of gape worm but I'm not sure. he seems to be eating and drinking as normal and there is no labored sound when he breaths (had him up to my ear tonight when I closed the coop up for about 5 minutes to get a good listen). I also did a q-tip swab that came up clear. his feathers and combe seem fine and waddles look normal. the only sign of possible Gape worm would be the opening of his beak at regular intervals, and his crowing is inconsistent and comes out more like a squeek. I am hoping I can get this figured out. we lost 18 birds to a weasel in one day and only 5 made it, George being one of them, it would be pretty sad to loose him. any help would be awsome so thank you all in advance.
