Just an update on the Pekin. He is still alive but spends a lot of his time sitting on the floor in the indoor aviary and his balance is not good.

just a thought , but is he eating much ? Supplementing his diet with Critical Care Formula or Polyaid might help

Hi Colin, he is eating ok,livefood, frozen Calciworms and blueberries in particular. He is up on the perches today but is still gasping with some white discharge from his beak and a now has a dirty vent from sitting on the floor so much this week. I have treated him again today with Tricho.

the white discharge is a concern as in theory the Tricho drops should have cleared that . . It's perhaps time to collect some of the discharge & get it tested

Hi, the Pekin is much better and is outside in the flight with the hen most of the day. He no longer has a discharge from his beak but his wings are still a little dropped and he is wheezing. They are in with Gouldian's so i'm thinking of treating all birds for air sac mite although no others are showing any symptoms.
