    My bantam year old silkie rooster named piper suddenly stopped being able to walk. At first we thought he had broken or sprained his leg, but today I decided to give him a bath to soak his leg and found that he seems to be in no pain what so ever and has no ability to move his left leg. He's alert eating and otherwise fine accept for his inability to walk due to his leg. Does anyone have any suggestions of what is wrong? Will he ever walk again? He hasn't been attacked or in any fights. He's a real loveable little man and id really like to see him moving/standing again.
    This photo is of him only a few days before he stopped walking.
