It doesn't look like bumble foot? Are you sure its tender? That could just be his natural pigment or s little sun burn.

I think its fine. When I had my Rhode Island red Rooster Rosco, he had red legs too and it never bothered him, and he actually got 3rd place at a poultry show. I wouldn't be worried. I think (most likely) it could also be hormones, that's really common with young male chickens.

oh alright, that might make sense then. he is only like 6 months old and just started crowing and liking the hens, so maybe its hormones
