Welsummer Rooster Suddenly walking Bow legged

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hope y'all can give me some advice. We noticed tonight that one of our 13 week old Wellie roos is walking as if his hocks are rotating outward giving him a funny bow legged look. The right looks worse than the left. I just finished 5 days of Corid/routine worming and have switched them to rooster booster. He isn't limping. Seems happy. No pain when I checked the joint. Crowing and eating normally. I watched him jump up on the roost board without difficulty. We switched them to gamebird finishing/layer feed recommended by our local MFA and they get treats throughout the day. You can actually see the joints slip when he walks.

What gives and how do we fix it? Is it a vitamin deficiency? He is a beautiful bird.

Thanx in advance.

Anybody?

 

Please? Should I keep him on the Rooster Booster or bump him up to Poly Vi Sol?

Goggle niacin deficiency. Might also help if you could post a picture or video.

I have a 2 month old hen that just started the same thing. Did you ever get any answers?
