Hi all,

It's been a while since I last posted on here but I was just wondering whether anyone is able to help as I have an issue with my main rooster. I noticed today that it was sneezing really really bad and breathing with his mouth open at times. I also noticed that it has quite a bit of an inflammation near the eye. Anyone got any ideas or recommend any treatment?
Thanks in advance!

It's a blockage in his airway and there are several reasons for that. Could be an allergic reaction to dust? Could be a respiratory infection? Could be a tumour? Could be Trichomonas Gallinae, which a a parasite that lives in the airways and causes what looks like cankers (but isn't)? Check down his throat for cream coloured 'growths'. Quite likely he will need to see a vet for either antibiotics or Flagyl.
