I have an old "pet" rooster who is about 7 years old. This past summer he has walked with a hitch on one side. Sometimes it seemed like his hip joint would lock or something and he could not bend it. The past week with the cooler damp weather coming in he is moving very stiffly and with the winter weather coming I am not sure if there is something I can do for him to help alleviate some of his discomfort. He still has his girls but has been avoiding my other roos even though he's still the top man on the totum pole. If I have to I can move him into my dog kennel building which is slightly heated but that would knock him out of his status position with the other roos and he would have a much harder time going back in the spring. Any thoughts or suggestions?
