Ok so I posted last weekend that my rooster hadn't crowed in 2 months and seemed to be sliding downhill quickly. Thursday I opened the coop and head was hung low, wings were drooping, and mucus was streaming from his beak. Same Friday. I called the vet. He said severe respiratory infection and once it got that far it was too late. I put him in a cage alone last night with medicated water and food in the garage. This morning he's trying to crow. Noise is coming out for the first time in months. Head, wings, and comb all back to normal. I know one night of antibiotics can't be it. My husband has decided that Gary, the rooster, needs a man cave to retreat to at times. . I have 2 hens and 4 pullets. Strange!
