I have no clue what is wrong with him.  You could take him to the vet.

I recommend you post in full detail at  "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread.  Sometimes Mareks disease starts as paralysis of a leg and accelerates from there.

Welcome to the BYC flock!  We are glad you joined us!

Hopefully you will have good luck on the emergencies forum.  In the meantime, be sure to isolate him from the rest of the flock.  This will prevent others from taking advantage of him in his weakened state, but also limit his movement so he can rest and hopefully begin to heal.

Ditto of the posts above.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
