My polish chicken's left foot is injured or is becoming deformed. I noticed about two days ago that he was not walking well and now he sits and I have to bring him food and water.
This is when his foot was normal
This is with me holding him. His left foot is turning in compared to his right.
This is when he has his weight on it.
Is there anyone who can tell me if there is anything I can do to help him. He is still inside and was about to be moved outside during the day with the other three pullets I have. I think that he may have had a scuffle with one of the others and hurt himself. I would also like to know if I should try to move him out or just let him rest inside by himself. This is my first time having to treat an injured chicken. My mom grew up on a farm but she doesn't know either because my grandpa would have just killed him. He is still a handsome boy though and I don't even eat meat so the thought of having to kill him really kinda freaks me out.
