    Some people use VetRx for respiratory illnesses. It is an all natural product made out of oils. Tylan 50 is the go-to antibiotic for respiratory diseases.
    You need to make sure your rooster is isolated from the rest of the flock to prevent spread of disease.
    How do you know he has a respiratory infection? Can you tell me some of his symptoms?

    Yes, that does sound like URD.
    Oops do we live in different countries? I'm not sure how to help. You may want to google "Tylan 50" and see if you can find anyone who would ship it to you. Also, try to find an avian vet in your area. They may be able to help your chicken. I'm sorry I couldn't help more

    A vet would be best, but if you can't find a vet, you could try human antibiotics if you have some.
