    My RR rooster is having trouble it seems breathing. His comb seems to be hot. He is drinking and eating lots. He is sneezing and coughing seems to get better then the next day he is back to the same again. What do we do and what could it be?
    Thanks

    You can get Tylan at tractor supply, I just got my duramycin there last weekend and put my rooster and flock on it. My rooster had three days of liquid antibiotics plus what was in the water. Good Luck
