Need advice on an injured rooster

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I can home from work last week and found my 5 mo old Cemani rooster unable to stand. X-Ray showed him with a broken tail bone and swollen gizzard area. I've kept him separated from the hens and as still as possible. He is alert , eating and drinking well, but has lost all use of his right leg, and tail of course. Any suggestions on how to help him?

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I would seek the advice of a veterinarian ASAP. Also you can immediately post on our Emergencies, Diseases, Injuries, and Cures section in Raising BackYard Chickens under the Forum at the top of the page and take advantage of our experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. I hope your Jersey Giant will be okay.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

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

Hi and welcome to BYC. Sorry, but I'm far from an expert on treating injuries, but i hope that others will chip in over the course of the day to help you out.

 

Good luck

Has your vet offered any advice?  Did the bird suffer a fall ?

Since you've had an x-ray, I assume you've already taken him to the vet. What does your vet recommend? If he's one that doesn't usually treat chickens (a lot of them don't), post over on the emergency forum and give a full accounting of your roo's injuries and treatment so far (pictures may help too). Hopefully, someone over there can give you some advice.

 

Good luck, I hope he'll be fine.

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
