Well I would be concerned about the not getting up at all but. How old is he? I've got one that is past his point of processing and really has limited time left. These poor guys aren't bred to be kept alive long. It's so very sad but we have to think of how their excess weight affects their bones and their bodies ability to support them.

Until you have a certain number of posts, images may not post if you are trying to post them directly.  Go to your profile page and scroll down to your album at the bottom of the page.

 

Click on the album and then select Add Photos.  Select Upload Files and follow the directions to select the image file that you wish to upload.  Once you have selected the image and clicked on open then click on the blue upload button.  Follow the directions and once you have the image in your album you can come back to your post and click on the pencil in the lower left hand corner and it will allow you to edit your post. 

 

Click on the mountain icon in the group with the smiley face. Select the image from your My Recent images then select the image size you want in your post and click on submit.

 

Good luck.

Welsummers, mixed breed chickens, Blue Slate turkeys, Sweetgrass turkeys and guineas.

In wonderful Wyoming.
