I think my rooster may have hurt his wing, don't think it's too bad but he hold his left wing lower than the right. When I try to move it up like he holds the other one it won't go, could it be dislocated? Is it bad enough to go to the vet or should it just heal on its own.

As long as he is still eating, drinking, and acting normally, I would keep an eye on him. Many times, a chicken will hurt themselves bumping into stuff or scuffling... It usually heals on its own with no help.

If he goes off food and water or becomes lethargic, THEN worry. Until then, observe and give it time. :)
