    My little BBB Rooster Billy was fine two days ago, walking around and scratching for worms but yesturday he was walking odd the only way I can describe it is, like his diaper was full.
    But he roosted fine.
    Today he was still walking odd but one of his legs was jerky and he was sitting down allot. I walked up and picked him up, no struggle.
    He is in the house now and I gave him vitamins and canned cat food. He seems fine otherwise.

    Do you think he sprained his hip? pretty hard to tell if it is swollen he already is chubby. I don't think its broken because he was walking on it.

    Is it some horrible disease? He is the only one acting this way.

    Is there anything I can give him? should I take him to the Vet or wait a few days to see if bed rest will help?
