    Hi All
    I have a seabright that for some reason cannot use one leg and cannot stand up. I do not think that it is broken. he still eats and drinks, but i have to put the food next to him. I took him to the vets and they said that the leg is not broken. His claw is also curled in. any ideas? could it be a stroke? it has been about a week.

    It would be a good idea to fill out the sticky at the top and maybe add some pictures if you can
