    Is it alert? Are its eyes open? Does it just seem unable to move around like it has sore feet? Or does it look like it's slowly dieing?

    probably a bad leg. best advice is to eat him. if you let him grow to full size with the rest of hte crop, the one quarter will be very skinny with no meat on it
