    I would look under slipped tendon. Maybe a splint for a short period of time would help but this is a new one for me.

    A 12 guage is not the answer. There are a lot of people on this forum who will be able to help. I just don't have any knowledge about this one. Guess I have to get my chicken health book out and search fast! No worries![​IMG]

    The only information I could find was for slipped tendons and that information only covered chicks. How old is the roo? Can you post pictures. I was thinking that you could fashion a splint out of popsicle sticks or paint stirers but then I don't know how the roo would roost to rest. I'm stumped.

    Can anyone else help?
