My rooster has had a bad wheeze for a few days. Today he no longer is crowing but chirping, he seems to be lacking air by opening his mouth. Comb also has gone from Bright Red to a almost purple color. Can anyone offer any advice???

Welcome to BYC. Sorry to hear about your rooster. The comb changing color from red to purple isnt good. It indicates a possible lack of oxygen. It could be a heart or heart valve problem, possibly an air sac issue...hard to tell.

Thank You. Very healthy up until thee days ago. I have given an antibiotic in water. It is almost as if he has asthma. But thank you for responding.
