I found my cochin bantam roo, Fancy Pants, dead in the coop yesterday. I had noticed nothing wrong with him except a slight gasp when he breathed yesterday. He was acting normally otherwise and I figured he just inhaled a crumble. I checked him thoroughly and I found lice or mites (not sure which yet) and he had pale wattles and a pale comb. I checked his throat for gapeworm - swabbed all around in there with a q-tip and got nothing. I dusted his coop mates and coop with Sevin and watched for anyone breathing funny... no one acting weird. Does anyone have any idea what happened to Fancy Pants?
