I posted a thread just over a week ago about a rooster that's around 4 months old that started limping. After 3 or 4 days, the toes on his left foot were completely curled under and he walked on the backs of his toes. We could see nothing wrong with the foot (no swelling or discoloration, etc.). My husband and I cleaned it, soaked it in epsom salts with frankincense and lavender oil, then taped it to a piece of cardboard. When we inspected it again later, the 2 joints on his middle toe appeared knobby compared to the same toe on the other foot. We took the splint off yesterday evening, and his foot is no better. And now we can see a lump over his ankle, so I'm guessing that is where the problem is -- quite possibly broken. I know of no way to splint his ankle so it will heal. I sure hate to put him down, so I thought I'd see if any of you have suggestions. I've attached some photos for you. Thanks!
