Hello, I'm after some advice please, as struggling to find useful info specific enough to my chicken. I have a non-chicken veterinary background so not just trying to avoid seeing a professional here and I'm learning to be able to help others in the future too. He is a 14 week old bantam cross who is partially free ranged with others about his age. Lame for about a week with no swelling or instability in the leg (although mildly now with some mild valgus) and so has been separated and rested in a comfy dog kennel. He is now completely lame and standing on his hock or one-legged with no visible flexion of his toes when his hock is flexed so I'm thinking its tendon/s rupture... he does fly/jump around a lot.... was concerned about Marek's and he seems to be the right age that kind of lameness occurs, but looks more like trauma to me. He still has good sensation in his toes. Otherwise is fine! Is this a hopeless situation? I'd consider surgery although he's a young bantam so not much to work with there and not sure anyone around here has the expertise... Otherwise rest and nursing care... any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated! He's my favourite chicken too and lets me handle him.
