Okay, my mottled houdan rooster somehow always manages to get stuff wrapped around his leg, and this last time cut the circulation off too long. We didn't notice until today, since he's been running around like normal and roosting on the top roost and whatever still. Anyways, I was going to just put him down, but since he's already used to his foot like this I'm trying to figure out how to amputate. His foot is dead, there's no saving it. I think the reason it got to this point so quickly is because of the cold/frostbite, cause he was fine last week. Anyways, if anyone has any advice for how to amputate a foot I'd appreciate it. From his "knee" down is completely dead, so I don't know if bleeding and whatever will be a problem. I am worried about infection, though. Thanks, and please don't turn this into a "what a horrible chicken owner" thread....if I can't amputate and save his life then I have no problem putting him down, but like I said he's been roosting up high and all that other great stuff and can run around even with his foot like this. That's the ONLY reason I'm trying to avoid killing him, not because I want to prolong a "miserable" life. Thanks!
