    My rooster has seemed under the weather for the past few days and I went out to give him a look over today. I noticed he has a growth or something on his beak. It is white and appears slightly raised. I have not gone out tonight to look at it and touch it. I thought I would see if anyone had any info about it before I go trying to scrap it off or mess with it in any way. I've included a photo of both sides of his beak. You can see the growth in both photos. My poor Sam, I'm worried for him. He's been a great roo and would like to not lose him. Thank for any help or assistance anyone may have

    His swallowing seemed a little labored, but he has been eating and drinking water.[​IMG]

    Ahh, it wasn't a growth, it's crust. He seems to have some type of respiratory infection. Has some clear mucos in his beak and it smells foul.
