    So I have this rooster who has a backwards leg. I got around fine when it was little, but now he just stays in one place in the coop and moves very little. I have I hand feed him and he is very weak and skinny. Is there anything I can do for this little guy. He’s about 5 months old 60F94842-B9AF-4333-85A9-7DC1818D1BF5.jpeg 54488E3C-1721-4F77-ACB4-5A36935B2FAB.jpeg 5AF0FC5F-D39B-40F3-9172-D66402BB1FD7.jpeg

    You need to give him amino acids with multivitamins (without iron) make sure it contain all vitamins with vitamin E , Selenium . good diet with eggs and Protein

    You could get him a chicken diaper and he could become a house pet. (Wow only I would say that but hey it's an idea!)

    I'm not sure, I've never heard of a backwards leg. You could do exercises with him every day to at least make it stronger I guess. Try stretching it out, then back in a few times. Sorry I'm no expert but I'm just sayin what sounds like it might help :idunno
