Let them out of the run into the yard yesterday and noticed he was limping on right leg. Eating, drinking and mounting the hens just fine. Still using it to scratch around too.

Hopefully it's something minor.. he sounds okay for the most part. If it was my bird I would put him in a animal carrier with clean bedding food water for a day or two then let him out and see how he does. if there's no visible injury then hopefully he just sprained it or something and needs to rest it for a bit.

Mine limps now and then. We caged him and ALl of sudden he had no limp. I read too they will limp to get the attention of a predator long enough for hens to get away.
