    Dear members,

    My rooster is shaking his head in a strange manner. Can any one identify what is causing this strange movement.
    Other wise he is healthy and active . Crowing loudly, and mating agressively. Ear canals are clear. No lice or mites on the body.

    Looking forward to yur valuable comments. Please have a look at the link below.




    Thank you

    Sorry that you have not had any possible information on the cause of this...

    I did look at the video you posted...

    I would check for any of the following:

    Respiratory disease...listen closely to his breathing..any signs of discharge from eyes...nostrils ( nares)

    Sinus infection is also a possibility

    Lice/Mites...can also cause the mentioned symptoms

    Have you recently treated for lice/mites ? If so...what product did you use ?

    p.s. He is absolutely gorgeous!!!
