    Hi, so my friends roster has started sneezing and wheezing just in the past night, we looked in his mouth and can see white mucus and inflamed all around is esophagus and into the opening of the bronchial tubes. We know of medicine that helps with respirator/ sinuses infections but the store is not open till tomorrow. We are hoping we can find something that will help him breath better over night as his mouth breathing and has shortness in breath.
    Hope someone has some suggestions.
    Thanks!

    WE do not have a dedicated "chicken" vet, either. If there is an avian vet in the area, he or she can see the bird. We had a very serious illness in one of our hens last fall. She's recovered now due to the intervention. I hope your roo feels better! Keep us up to date, please!

    How is he doing now?

    I've heard that chopped garlic and fresh oregano in the water helps keep lungs healthy. I think its more preventative though.
