    I have a cockerel, recently he's been walking funny.. I clipped his ours as I thought it was this but he seems to kick out every step that he takes. Can anyone help me please?

    Nice to meet you Milly. Have you checked the bottoms of his feet? Sometimes birds develop "bumble foot" and it hurts them to walk. If you put "bumble foot" in the search box, you can see if the symptoms match. Welcome to Backyard chickens.
