    This guy came with some girls that I got. He is small banty size. He walks and runs funny. When he walks its like he is high stepping and when he runs its like he hopping almost. Not sure if thats because of his spurs or what but it doesnt look like it. His cheeks also have kind of a yellow color to them. Sorry the pic isnt the best it was on my phone and he didnt want to stay still

    He looks like my white leghorns. But his feet look kinda funny. Is there a problem with his feet?

    Where is his fourth toe? The one that is supposed to be in back? I think maybe that is his problem with getting around and the "funny" way he runs is compensation for not having that toe.

    No idea on the breed [​IMG] I am not into bantams at all. I wouldn't trim his spurs. If he is disabled he could need that for protection and possibly for balancing out without that toe. It wouldn't hurt to leave those for the little guy [​IMG] Just my opinion.

    I'm also seeing no back toe in that photo. Could you catch him and get us a close-up of his feet? No back toe would definitely impede his balance. Does he/can he grab onto round roosts without it?
