I have an issue that seems to be progressing. I have 1 roo that was hatched on 12/12/2011 with 5 girls about the same age, in the same pen over the last couple of weeks it seems that they have started to sneeze every so often. I thought maybe the coop was too dusty so I did a total clean out of the coop (scrubbed the roosts, new bedding, dusted everything, added a smaller amount of DE. The run gets raked every evening. My little roo did seem to be stretching his neck but I thought he was trying to crow. This was not a consistent thing just every so often. The roo never seems to really crow and doesnt seem to attempt to anymore. All my birds look healthy, they have been eating and drinking (water with ACV, that gets changed nightly). They also get cooked oatmeal, grits and cornbread plus a few other treats. While handling the birds last night my DH and I heard a gurgling noise from the roo and he does look tired. My first thought was gapeworm with his stretching of the neck but because the girls seem to sneeze every so often it makes me second guess maybe a respiratory issue? I did take two other little roos to a swap a week ago but they were on cement at the swap. I did not quarantine them when they came back from the swap (didnt think about that actually, it was my first swap). The two little roos are in the same coop but with with a divider in between them and the others. They have their own run area. We also only were specific shoes into the run or coop and the shoes are removed once out of the run or coop for biosecurity. HELP PLEASE!!!! 1) What type of bird , age and weight. Coronation Sussex, 8 to 10lbs (?) 2) What is the behavior, exactly. Streching neck, slight gurgling sound 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? noticed gurgling sound last night. Stretching of the neck for about a month 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? The roo looks slightly lethargic but is still moving around, eating and drinking seem to be the same. 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. None 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. None noted 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Normal pellets (Dumor) ACV in water, grits, oatmeal, they do get to free range in the evenings so worms and bugs. 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Poop varies from a little runny to semisoft no blood or visible worms 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? None, I wanted recommendations first. 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? Would like to treat completely myself if possible 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use. Coop is 4X10 enclosed with windows and vents for ventilation no known drafts. I use pine shavings and DE (food grade). Coop is cleaned on regular basis. The attached run is 10X12 covered, with dirt floor.
