Is there something I can give my young cockerel for pain?

What kind of problem does he have? Metacam (meloxicam) can be given, but it comes from a vet. A low dose 81mg aspirin can be given twice a day by mouth, but if he is bleeding that could ikncrease it.

Something is wrong with his leg..... he is limping and does not want to walk.  Today I am going to isolate him and put food and water close.  I didn't know he was in pain or limping.  He stays to himself, two young pullets are always with him so I thought they just had their own thing. I am new to chickens and of course learning the hard way.  I now know about bumblefoot so I will really inspect his feet.  Yesterday I held him and felt his feet all over he never flinched until I flexed the leg.  I do know he doesn't want to walk at all.  No bleeding.  Thanks for the information.
