    Pekin dragging its feet

    I have about a 1 year old pekin. He hasn’t had any issues until the last week when he started dragging his feet. He’s fine with walking some but will just need to sit down and rest.

    Rooster's spur is hanging on by a thread

    One of my roosters has been cocky lately & looks like he got in a good scuffle. His spur is hanging on by a thread! He walks fine (unless he bumps it) but I'm worried it's hurting him. 😔 Is there a wound spray that might numb it? Will it just fall off? He isn't one that will just let me catch...
