    Check his feet for injuries, like bumble foot.

    I know some large breed birds, like dogs, can have leg problems. Perhaps he is having problems with his hips.

    I agree with the poster above.

    Roost bars for Jersey Giants should not exceed 3 feet above the ground. If a JG lands on the ground too hard, it can result in leg problems/broken toes/etc.
