When I brought him home, he started shaking his head a lot. Some coughing too. For the past few days, he's been making a gurgling noise when picked up and while breathing. He's also slightly holding his mouth open. And wont crow now. When he does crow, you can barely hear it. His eyes and nose are clear, no discharge. He's acting normal otherwise. I have noticed his breastbone is more prominent due to not eating as much. I think he has gapeworm. I did look into his throat, but didn't see any red worms. I noticed he will cough and move his beak as if he's swallowing it back down.
