    Hi Folks,

    I have a wonderful 9 month old Orpington bantam cock, who for months now, just wheezes? No discharge from eyes or nose, basically looks fine behaves fine but when he moves about (like when he follows me about the garden) he is wheezing.
    Any ideas on what I should do with my wheezing Alfie?

    Does he have any other symptoms, such as nasal or eye drainage, swelling around an eye or the face? Fungal infections such as aspergillosis usually don't cause wheezing or tales, unless complicated by a secondary bacterial or mycoplasma infection. Other possibilities could be something physically partially obstructing his airway, or a chronic allergy to something.
