    The other day my Rott chased my chickens. All got away but Roster appears to have injured his leg. Haven't seen him eat or drink. Not standing. Just sitting in one of my nesting boxes. Any help is greatly appreciated. New to the whole chicken experience.

    Feel along the leg for fractures, hot spots and swellings. Compare one leg to the other. Let us know what you find.

    Didn't feel like it was broken. Fed him some meal worms. Which he loved.Forced him some water. Doing much better.
