    out of my 28 roosters, i have one barred rock that just sts and flops all the time. i thought maybe because the sawdust that im using for a bedding in my coop got on it and it couldnt get it off so i picked it up and kind of tossed it to get it to flap its wings and get the sawdust out. it kind of worked but it just seems that he still flops and scratches the ground more then normal. any tip/help/solutions/info????
