    Sorry I don't know what to tell you, I would give him electrolytes/vitamins and maybe some garlic, I would get him away from the rest of flock to be safe, hoepfully someone else with superior knowledge will come along but I feel you will be safe doing the above.

    Have you tried Vet RX? It sez on the lable that it is for colds, roup, scaly legs and eye worm." To aid in the treatment of minor respiratory conditions" You can pick it up at any feed store or TSC.

    A good poultry supplement cant harm and might give just that extra support to his own immune system to overcome what is ailing him...
    Is there congestion or swollen eyes/runny eyes or such?

    My silkie roo kinda wheezes at the end of his crow!! It kinda sounds like he has ashma at the end each time. Though I don't notice any noise coming from him when he is not crowing.

    watch him carefully to see if he is stretching his neck out or shaking head to try and dislodge something... if so it might be gapeworm...
