In the Brooder
- Jun 3, 2008
My Australorp rooster, Sarge, is 2 years old.A couple of weeks ago I noticed a small red spot on his throat, I assumed it was he was molting. Now the spot is bigger.About the size of a sliver dollar. I had DH catch him to check his crop it seemed fine. I noticed his breathing was a bit raspy.He seems just fine other than this.He is kept in a coop with 2 hens who seem fine.I put gravels in their coop every couple of months. They have been on Scratch for a while so DH said to give them crumbles. Going to give him some antibiotic today.I have no clue what could be wrong.The Chickens are molting so I guess the spot could be nothing but it looks very ugly. Any replies would be helpful.Sarge is my Favorite.
