    I have a serama rooster sounds hoarse and he seems to be congested and sneezing or making some sort of noise and when he sleeps he sounds like he is wheezing. I have used humidifier and it does not see my help any. Can seramas be vaccinated ?

    If you can't take him to a vet you could try antibiotics. If he were mine and I thought it was a bacterial infection I would give him Baytril orally or by injection at 15-20mg/kg once a day for no more than five days.

    Baytril is banned for use in poultry, so read up on it and decide if it's something you want to use.
