    I would check first to see if there's something environmental causing the symptoms, such as ammonia fumes from soiled bedding, feed dust, pollen, pesticide in the soil etc...
    If it's not environmental, I recommend that you quarantine him and treat him with tylan 50 only. Your other option would be to cull him, remember biosecurity.
