My rooster has being getting some syptoms that I noticed a while back. Not exactly sure what it is. My rooster has had this cheesey smell from his nostrils for a while now, prob 2 months now. It has been taking over slowly, runny eyes, dry muscus in the nostrils. and slight discoloration of the comb.

Tried antibiotic, tetracycline. tried garlic, nd apple cider vinegar. Vitamin tablets.

Really worried, his symptoms are developing rather slowly, in the period of 2 or so months. He has been with the hens,
and they seem totally healthy.

Any help nd what it might be be also help.Really stressful

Respiratory infection. He needs to see a vet (pref avian) ASAP for prescription antibiotics. OTC tetracycline is a waste of time and money - almost everything is resistant to it. Meanwhile quarantine him.

See above Sue55's comments. You tried folk remedies and cheap over-the-counter antibiotics. These don't work for serious infections. Vet strength antibiotics are required.

I'm with Sue and Linz. An avian vet would be best as he also might need a sinus flush to clean out any build up of pus in his sinuses.
