    My little banty roo is not well. He's eating, but sleeping alot. seems to be going down. he started with dry scaley skin on back of neck, along with loss of feathers to that area. He's very congested sounding. I've treated him with betadine to skin, and giving him antiobotic. Not improving. HELP

    Could the skin problem be lice or mites? Might treat for that.
