I have a 5 week old mille fleur rooster with a lame leg. The injury occured while in the brooder, it wasn't witnessed (although some little girls had been over visiting the babies that day, and may have inadvertently hurt this one) The poor thing has had the injury for 3 weeks now, it is no better, no worse. He can walk very awkwardly for a short distance,it's a wide legged waddle kind of walk, if startled or if he tries to run he falls over on his side. he doesn't seem to be in any pain. i can see no obvious injury (sore or cut) but when i lay him on his back in my palm that leg will extend out abnormallly (almost like its dislocated). he has stayed with his littermates who are always kind to him, no fighting no pecking. he spends most of his time laying down. my plan is to wait and see, he eats well, he's able to stay clean. As he gets bigger will he get worse? i guess my plan is to keep him with the other mille fleur hen, separated from the other chickens, for as long as he lives. Does anyone else have a lame chicken that has managed to survive? Thanks in advance.
