    our silver seabright bantam rooster seems to have a cold. this seems harmless, but he hasn't been eating . . . this rooster is not nice, and we have a developing replacement, but we don't want this one to go 6 ft. under. what should we do???[​IMG]

    Not sure how to teach a bird to gargle so that's out, but a little bit of honey and lemon might help sooth his throat a bit.

    He is not nice, you are developing a replacement? And you won't cull(eat) him?
    In reality there are only two choices, make one!
