    I have a cochin roo with a limp. It's not bumblefoot, i'm almost positive. Theres no breaks, etc. Hes still fairly young, we believe 10-11 months and the feathers on his legs are kind of 1/2 way there. On his bad leg, the skin where they are coming in seems very red..but since this is my first time with chickens, I dont know if thats a normal thing. He gets around fine, still takes care of his hens, is still able to....dance with them. What do you all think? Worry, not worry?
