Someone gave us this rooster today, and I'm a little worried about him. There's definite damage to the comb, which you can see in the first three pics. He also had some bleeding on the bottom of his toes, but I wasn't able to get a pic of that. I put a little neosporin on both areas, and I've checked on him regularly. Is there anything else I should do? I'm not sure what caused the damage. My husband believes that the previous owner may have kept him in a low cage, which caused constant rubbing on his comb any time he stood up or walked around. I'm fairly certain that the toe damage came from the cage he was in when we got him. He was very distressed, running from side to side, and I think he hurt himself on the perches, which were square instead of round. He's also been sitting in the nest box furthest from the run most of the day. When I open the people door to check on him, he'll turn around with his head to the inside of the box, but he'll let me pet his tail without clucking or raising his hackles. I haven't tried anything more than that, since I'm not sure how he would react to me reaching for him while he's in such a small space. Also, do his feet in general look ok? (4th pic) We only have black australorps, and this is the first flock we've ever raised, so I really don't know what's normal and what to be concerned about. I think he just moulted, but again, I don't know if this is the way he's supposed to look after moulting. Our girls have very smooth, soft legs and feet. Lloyd's are rough and hard-feeling. Also, the claws on both outer toes and very short and point up, instead of curving down. TIA for your help!
