SO...I have this rooster. 1 year old, EEgger, pine shavings, eats and drinks normally, frisky and active. BUT he opens and closes his mouth a lot to breath and his crow is kind of wimpy. I treated for worms (in case it was gapeworm). But I didn't use Wazine which appears to be the wormer of choice around here. Is it possible the wormer I used didn't work? I used Prohibit. But dissolved in 1qt then add 1tsp to 1gal of water. And gave that for 2 days. http://www.valleyvet.com/ct_detail....rce=froogle&utm_medium=free&utm_content=16572 He is still gaping and his crow is still wimpy. SO...either I the wormer didn't work, or it is an upper respiratory viral infection (more likely because that's what 5 of my hens have right now). But the hens that are sick are lethargiv and snotty. He is neither. He is a newer addition to the flock. Yes, I did quarantine him. Don't berate me, but he was doing the open mouth thing in quarantine, I just didn't know what it was. I am new to chickens and that wasn't on the list of things to look for that I read. It said "signs of respiratory infection" but I just thought he was doing that because he was scared of me. I feel pretty stupid in hind sight. So, here is what I am thinking A: He still has the worm, and I need a different wormer. B: He has the same infection as the hens (brought in by wild birds or something), but just isn't as affected as the hens for some reason. C: He is a carrier for an infection. He has had it in the past, so this second time around he isn't as sick, but he made my hens sick. Unfortunately, I think the answer may be C. What do ya'll think?
