Hello!

It seems like the last few days I've noticed that my rooster's crow seems to get lower and lower in tone, like he was losing his voice. Then I checked on him today, and he is wheezing. His crow now has a very high pitch to it. His crown has a large scab on it when he was fighting with another rooster and the turkey tom. We're thinking he has a collapsed lung, etc. I just don't know. He's pretty tame and lets me pick him up, but worried about his condition. He is still able to fly around, eat, drink and walk. Wondering if I should get some Vet RX???

I'm wondering if there's a punctured air sac due to the fighting. Put your ear on one side of his body and listen for a whistling noise. Then do the same to his other side. If you hear whistling, it's a punctured air sac. If so, there's nothing that can be done.
