Any ideas @luxbwinDVM ?
@q8peafowl , infection maybe? Some sort of disease?
I don't know, I'm afraid its newcastle, could it be?
Its been like this for 2 months now, someone said it could be a problem that came from the hot weather.
I know nothing about newcastle.
@Eggcessive , help!
Looks like Newcastle to me. I am sorry it took me so long to respond; I was driving. But as soon as I saw the video, I thought ND. A few questions, and this is not medical advice, any other birds showing clinical signs? How many birds are at risk? How old is the bird? Where are you located?
My other differentials include an ear infection, a bacterial infection in the sinus, a tumor, or a traumatic injury. At this point, your best to give supportive care as long as you feel the quality of life is not at risk.
Have a nice night.
@q8peafowl is in Kuwait. How common is ND here in the states?
From my personal observations, I would not count heat out as a contributing factor, Ive seen this before especially in guineas when chasing each other in the Texas heat. Q8peafowl is in the absolute hottest place on earth in my opinion, Kuwait 120's is quite common,.
