    Ok I have a bantam roo and he has lost his crow. I'm serious he makes all other sounds but when it comes to crowing he has all of the movements but it comes out as a whisper if at all. He isn't sick and there are no signs of illness. He used to crow all the time really loud too. Maybe I told him to use his inside voice too much.[​IMG]

    That was the first symptom my rooster had when he got infectious bronchitis, his crow became hoarse and then he pretty much lost it. After a few days he also showed a wet cough and occasional sneezing and runny nose.
