    my rooster has been limping for a while now. i noticed that his right knee is bigger than his left one and today i checked it and has a small cut on his knee. also, when he stands, his right leg is slanted. his left leg is straight down but his right one is at an angle towards the inside. im worried. i attached a dowel to his leg to have it straightened for a couple of days. any help?
