Have a roo a out 8 or 9 months old. Had a friend holding onto him for a few months while we moved. Picked him up yesterday, everything seems fine. Today he has his mouth open all day. First time I noticed it is about 10. He isn't gurgling, but does sound like he has a dry scratchy throat. He is constantly inhaling & exhauling through his mouth. Also he is missing the feathers on the bottom side of his neck So far I have inspected for any forgien objects, rubbed his throat multiple times, gave him a small amount of grapeseed oil & rubbed his throat some more. He does sound better when I rub his throat. This past time he acted normal for about 5 minutes after me spending quite a while massaging his throat. Then he went back to having his mouth open. Haven't seen him drink, tried to force him, but wasn't effective. Saw him peck food, corn & grass-- but he didn't eat anything. Just pack 1 or 2 times. First thoughts was he is hot & stressed from the move. Then started thinking something was stuck in his throat. But it has been the whole day & it is still going on. No other symptoms (runny nose puffy eyes, etc). Comb still looks good. Any ideas? Suggestions?
