    [​IMG] this is a picture of my roosters hurt foot. I don't know what he did to it but its moist like something popped. He's been limping for 2 or 3 weeks. I don't know what's wrong with him. Or how to treat it. Any information would be appreciated.

    No scabs or cuts. And when I touch it it feels like Pus under the skin

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    I'm sorry to hear about your rooster! If you don't see any signs of injuries, it may be a mild sprain/strain, or could be a sign of disease. How old is he?

    I suggest posting in the Emergencies/Injuries section for more help:Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    The pad doesn't look infected to me. I think he sprained something or bruised the foot joint. I would get him on some soft bedding for a while. Keep him confined to a small space. No free ranging, no roosting on the bars, just coop time with food and water for a couple weeks even. Sprains can take a while to heal on birds.

    I hope he is going to be ok! :)
