We have been doctoring a rooster for over two weeks with a severe ear infection. I took him to an avian vet and we have been giving him Metacam and Baytril orally and some ear drops along with cleaning out the ear. He is in a big cage in our house so we can monitor him. His head is still totally upside down, but he will eat and drink if I hold him in my lap and put the bowl under his beak. We have put over $250 in this chicken (I know, I'm crazy!) and, although he is still living, he doesn't seem much improved. His comb seems to be shrinking and the other side of his face is just now swollen. Should I just call it quits and put him out of his misery? (He's our pet now and that's so hard to do!) This current round of meds will probably last about another week. It's gone on so long now, I would rather him die on his own or get better!!! Help, anybody? Thanks.
