Cockerel jumped from 4 foot height onto hard ground at 10 weeks. He’s now 12 weeks and spends most of days laying though can still run fast but mostly limps short distance then lays down. No Bumblefoot. I think he’s injured tops of legs. Is this fixable or is it for life.

My 2 year old leghorn rooster started developing these lumps about a year a go. It started with one and gradually got more and more. No other birds have been affected in the flock. I’ve seen it in leghorn roosters before but not sure what it is and if you can get rid of it?
