    And take a Qtip with you to swab his mouth and throat. If he has gapeworm, which he can get from eating earthworms, you will see them, very thin red threadsy looking things. You can do a search and find pics in here, I'm sure.

    I am no expert, but it worth a shot to see if he has it [​IMG]

    You should follow RedRoosterFarm's recommendation. Since he's crowing, it's NOT gapeworm.
