Some kind of intestinal irritation which could include parasites?
Is he a meat bird? How old is he?
no, not a meat bird. Black Copper Marans. 2 years old. rooster. Hadn't wormed or dusted either...so no doubt we have those issues. I hate learning the hard way. I shoulda had a book a long time ago.
Well, I'm out of ideas then- I was trying to rule out one of those rare diseases I read about- doesn't sound like that's what it is. *whew*
Yes, if it were me, I would treat with one of those pour ons that kill all external and internal parasites, maybe. And since he's a boy you don't have to worry about tossing the eggs for awhile.
But I really have no idea what's wrong with your guy. I hope he gets better!
I hope someone else will know the answer!
Give us an update after some treatments!
Is your rooster showing any other symptoms besides abdominal swelling? Is the swelling hard (tumor?) or soft and fluid-like? A swollen abdomen can be a sign of lymphoid leukosis, or could be fluid in the abdominal cavity (ascites) caused by a heart or other problem. Let us know if he has any other symptoms and maybe someone with more chicken experience than I will come along.
my other post...
thank you guys...
he's the same but really hard between his legs and back towards vent. he's acting so so, not so bad for the way he feels underneath. I am going to have to do something
