HELP! Baby, my Lemon Blue rooster is limping. I noticed it first last evening. He'll be 4 years old this coming September. I can't get near him, as he has always been a feisty boy who loves to peck. He is holding up his foot from time to time, and I could see under it. I don't see signs of bumblefoot yet.... Have you ever heard of a rooster recovering from a limp? I don't think he has a broken nail. Could a spur cause him to limp, I wonder? I have never cut off his sp...urs. What else could trigger a limp? He is enjoying mating in this warm weather. Could he have gotten hurt while doing so, maybe jumping up after a hen and falling somewhere? I'm worried his leg could be broken? Or a tendon hurt? I don't know what to do. I have an avian vet, but I don't think he'd want to deal with my bad boy. Can they sedate roosters to work on them? I might be able to get him at night, with heavy gloves, out of the coop and put him in a cage to take him to the vet. He's a favorite of mine, raised indoors by hand. I'd hate to lose him if there's anything I could do to help him. Has anyone ever heard of a rooster recovering from a limp without intervention? All replies will be appreciated.
