What gives? My approx 12 month old Light Sussex rooster seems to be losing his crow. He use to have a beautiful loud deep crow, and just over the last couple of days he seems to have lost it. Its just a wheezing squeaky crow now. He also seems to be breathing fairly loudly too. Could he have strained himself competing with the younger boys? Or could it be something serious like a respiratory disease? Other than the crowing problem, he seems healthy as always. Sounds silly but could it have anything to do with him sleeping on the ground in a dirt hole instead of on the roost? What could i do to help him? Any ideas? Has anyone else had this happen?
