Rooster with a purplish comb and hides away? Any ideas?

One of my roosters has a purplish comb and is quiet and hides. I have isolated him temporarily until I find out what the problem is. Does anybody know?
Could be a heart problem, or even something like the bird flu. Purple comb generally means bad circulation, or problems with the respiratory system. Definitely keep him separately, and provide supportive care.
Where are you located? Could be avian flu, although they say in most places the Rick is currently low. You might want to contact your area extension office or local state vet.
