Hi: My 4 year old rooster is very sick. Last month he started acting strange and walking funny and within a few days he couldn't walk at all. He started breathing thru his mouth and would lay on his side with his feet curled up. I immediately started him on Tylan 50 injections and gave him nutri drench as well. He was on Tylan for 4 days and I let him rest 5 days and gave him 2 days of penicillin injections. He started getting up and walking and he was even crowing and running around. He always ate and drank well. This went on for a 8 or 9 days. Yesterday he went down again. I started him on the Tylan50 again. I don't know if maybe he just needed more days of the Tylan and that is why he went down again. I feel so bad for him....he is our pet and we love him so. Has anyone encounter something like this before. I was told about Mereck and was told to look in at his eyes with a flashlight and see if there was any cloudiness around his pupils, but his eyes look clear and bright. He doesn't sneeze or have mucus either. Please I need some advise. Don't know if I am doing the right thing.
