I think it's best not to advise a minor about heath issues, If he took your advise and had adverse effects it could be a legal issue for ya! Let his parents take care of that and lets move on~~~ My Rooster also is limping hes eating good and drinking fine I know that he is haveing some stress or pain because his comb is not a bright as it usually is~~~~ kinda pink! I have him sitting on my dining room table in a makeshift kennel ( my laundry hamper) great for nesting boxes and if ya have to travel or bring them in for bad weather situations =) I give him a li aspirin in water and keep him quiet on a clean soft towel ~~ he has his grain a few grapes wich he likes and a water bottle to peck at for water!! I am hoping in a few days he will be ready to return to his ladies..... but he hasn't been crowing!!! ~~~ I took him outside for a few minutes and he saw his girls and he did crow but not since I brought him back in!! do you think what i am doing is ok? or do the girls need him out there for direction or warning? i would hate for something to happen to them because i took him in and left them without warning! any feedback on this question would be appreciated!
What you are doing is fine. You can also give him an epsom salt soak for 15-20 minutes,great for sprains/sore muscles. I would keep him inside for a few days,to monitor his condition. Make sure he is eating/drinking properly. Check the bottom of his foot for bumblefoot,just to rule it out.
