    Please help me. Yesterday we were placing our older chicks out in a run, and one little bantam roo jumped out. When I bent down to catch him he flew/hopped/ran and I had ahold of part of his back and his right leg. When he quickly pulled I felt something pop and now he can't use that leg at all. He can't stand on it. or anything today I went to check on him and he drags it if he moves.. what can I do? Is it dislocated.. surely it couldn't have broken that easily.. I wasn't being rough at all.. he just darted at the same time I barely had him.. PLEASE let me know if anyone knows what if anything that I can do. Thanks [​IMG]

    Sounds like a dislocation to me. I would try to rotate it around and extend it and see if it pops back in. You can give him 5 baby aspirin mixed to a gallon of water for pain. If it is swelling apply a cold press to it.
