Roo with broken foot?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So my dark brahma roo started limping badly 4 days ago. He hops on one leg when he walks, he hasnt been eating too much (about 2 grapes and some flower petals off a plant on my deck a day.) he drinks fine. He just lays around all day. I checked his foot the best i could, and nothing appears to be wrong. Its hard to examine his foot cuz its covered with feathers! And if its broken, how would i wrap up his feathery leg? Thanks!

Feel of his leg joints to compare them for any swelling. Feathered legs can be a pain to examine for anything. Check the bottoms of his foot pads for bumblefoot (dark spot, redness, and swelling.) I would pen him up for 1-2 weeks with food water, and poultry vitamins to see if he gets better with rest. A dog crate would enable him to stay with the other chickens.
