    ]Hello All, so glad to be a part of such a neat thing...I'm in desperate need of help. I have a Delaware rooster. He was hatched in July. Actually, I just realized yesterday he was a rooster. He has always been bigger than my others, but is now starting to get big tail feathers and a comb. He is so sweet, but as he's growing, one of his legs is slowly getting worse. I don't rearly know a lot about chickens at all. It's at like a 90 degree angle. I can tell it hurts if I touch it.[

    How long has his leg been like this? Can you post a pic or two of it, so we can see what's going on there? I think it may be fractured, or dislocated, if it's at an angle, but it's hard to tell from the little info you gave.

    Hi, welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    That does look really painful! For me, I probably wouldn't be able to afford the vet. And not sure I could perform the procedure, so I might cull. [​IMG]

    Hope you get better ideas. [​IMG]

    It's been bad for awhile, but getting worse. I don't know much about chickens, he is still fairly young. Born in July. I didn't notice it though until he was about 8 weeks old
