We've got a Blue Dutch cockerel (Jack) that's about 9 months old. He's usually very vocal and active. A few days ago he and Pecksley (5 month old Salmon Favorelle cockerel) had a little chest butting incident over a pullet ... boys will be boys . The funny thing is that Pecksley seemed to wind up winning. See, normally he stays far away from Jack. I noticed a couple of days ago that Jack stopped crowing. I just figured he was sulking because Pecksley bested him. Yesterday one of my sons said something was wrong with Jack's foot. He was laying down with one foot stuck out in front of him and his toes were kind of curled. I picked him up and saw that his other leg was the same. And my spirited little guy was very calm and quiet. He shakes a little bit once in a while. He tried jumping up/flying. It looked like he had his toes straight when he landed but the flying was more of a hope with his wings spread. He doesn't move around much but when he does he acts like his legs are hurting. I feel so bad for him but I don't know what to do. Here's some particulars - Jack is a house bird - at least he has been since we got him from a friend back in October. I suspect he was most likely in an outdoor pen before that. He shares his cage with his mate Lily (who has become quite mean to the other two birds in the cage - a 4 month old banty Buff Brahma pullet that is half blind and a Jungle Fowl that is about the same age. For bedding we're using wood shavings from TSC. Jack is eating a layer feed as Lily and some of our other girls are laying - Layena. His eyes are clear and he seems awake and alert. He kind of just sits in the cage and when I hold him and pet him he normally falls asleep. I'm hoping someone can give me some direction here. He's one of our prettiest boys - he won best of show at fair this year.
