    We got this rooster and 12 chicks about a month ago. He was healthy up until 3 or 4 days ago when he couldn't crow. Now it looks like he's struggling to breath and it's real raspy. I've separated him from the flock, but is there anything I can do for him?

    I did some research and what I read sounds like infectious bronchitis and should pass in a week or so.

    Help??

    Thanks!

    Relaxing with my Buns
    Is he eating, drinking, pooping? How is his poop? Does it look normal?
    Does he have any discharge coming out of his nose, eyes or mouth?

    All else is normal. Eating, drinking, and poop. I went to Hawaii's version on TSC and got VetRX. No Tylan, hopefully will have some in next week.

    Did the VetRX this evening and wheezing doesn't sound as severe, but still there. He is not happy being away from his girls (he has a flock of close to 100 all ages, from 4 weeks to 4 years). He put up a fuss so he's not ferling to bad, just sounds horrible and has a silent crow right now.
