Hi all - I've been googling and searching this forum for any ideas on what my rooster's problem is, but I haven't come up with anything. I'd appreciate any help or if anyone could point me in the right direction. He's a bantam cochin roo I rescued about 6 months ago, I believe he's about a little over a year old. About a week and a half ago he started limping. I caught him and gave him a pretty thorough look-over - no cuts, abrasions, obvious injuries, etc. Checked for scabs/lesions after reading about bumblefoot and felt the leg for anything abnormal. I didn't find anything and the limp has progressively gotten worse. Now he won't use it at all and hops everywhere, dragging the other foot behind him. The foot appears normal but the leg has golden yellow skin between his hock and his foot and feels a bit warmer than the normal skin closer to his body. I've checked everything up from his toes and can't feel any kind of abnormality, but clearly I'm not a trained vet. He still eats, drinks and crows so I'm assuming whatever it is isn't systemic and is isolated to the leg. I feel bad that I didn't notice the leg earlier, but being feather footed makes it a little harder. He got a trim today to make sure I didn't miss anything. LOL I've attached a couple of pics - hopefully they'll help. One with him standing showing the lame foot curled under, a close-up of the foot and a couple showing the normal white vs the yellow skin. He just got a bath, so pardon the bedraggled look.
