I have a rooster that was attacked by a dog and he is now living in a brooder in the house. He has been in the brooder for the last month and a half. He eats and drinks fine, and he stands on both legs. At one point, he was walking but stood on his own feet and would fall or trip. Now his strong leg is under him like it should be and the bad leg he keeps back when he stands. When he walks he can move it forward but doesn't like to put weight on it and hops and flaps his wings; he stabalizes himself with his wing on the same side like a crutch. When I hold the joint, what seems to be his knee, and slightly squeeze it, I feel something move inside. so I am unsure what is going on. Also when he is laying down he tends to put one foot behind him or both out to the side. He can still curl his toes around things when put on them, but he won't perch, seems to be lack of balance.
any help would be appreaceated
