Last night our lovely rooster was sleeping on the ground instead of the roost. He and a few others occasionally do this so I didn't think anything of it. However, this morning he cannot move! He is keeping his neck tucked in and he stumbles when he tries to move. I tried gently massaging him to see if I could find out what was bothering him and it seems like his left leg is injured. He cannot seem to bring it forward and it's just kind of stuck back. It's also not bending very well at the hock and his toes don't curl when I stretch it like the other foot does. He is a very large bird and moving around on one leg is not possible for him. Please help! He is my baby and I can't stand to see him suffering!
