    I got this beautiful polish rooster, about 3 weeks ago if you can see his right leg seems shorter but I am really not sure what the problem is I bought vitamins and he eats well, drinks well he is happy and does walk around he lays down alot, I examened all under his feet and everything not sure if it is shorter than ther other just dont know. I am new to chickens! any ideas I also leave him is his cage with the hen so he can be quiet! Thank you![​IMG] he is about 4 months old!

    I enlarged your pic, and I think what you're seeing is an optical illusion...the feathers are somewhat longer on the one leg. From what I can see the 'knee joints' are in line with each other.
