    Last nite one of my roosters either sprained or broke on of his toes on his foot. kids put him in a separte cage for the nite since he was having a hard time standing on it. this morn he seems to be able to stand on it better but still is favoring it and laying down quite a bit .Should i do anything or just give him time?

    keep a goo d eye on him. one of my quail broke his foot would not stand on it at all, he got so used to scooting around after healing that the foot is of no more use(eventhough is saw him using that leg again after it was healed) i just fatten him up a bit and he get eaten soon.
