    My Brahma rooster has been sitting on the ground for a couple of days. He has a hard time jumping down, too. Can anyone tell me if this is bumblefoot? Photos are of each foot. Thank you!

    It does not look to be Bumble foot.

    Bumblefoot usually has a nice black spot on the bottom of the foot,which is removed and puss ETC comes out to help heal the foot/sore.
    He could have fractured his foot,or his leg bone and possibly just have brused it.

    It looks like his toes are some what,clipped?

    Thank you for the reply. I didn't want to cut on his foot without being sure. His toes haven't been clipped. He hatched here, and I wouldn't do that. I noticed the same thing, though.
