Looks to be Limping on his Left leg, sits all day , i think other roosters have been bullying him as well, put him in a separate cage doesn't want to come out when other chickens are around and runs/limps back inside cage when other chicken approach, no blood anywhere as far as i can see doesn't drink much .

Just got back from the Vet, looks like Marek's Disease, had to put him down, waiting for a post mortem report to let me know what is going on with the rest of my flock , thanks everyone who replied, i appreciate it.

Oh my goodness 😟😟😟. My rooster is limping now, but he’s usually not the friendliest so I’m scared to approach him to see if there is cut. We thought he may have injured himself jumping off roost or trying to scale the fence. Didn’t even think of disease as a possibility??!! Was yours exhibiting any other symptoms? Did you treat your coop and run with anything to prevent spread to other chickens? Ours were not vaccinated. Thanks, eloise
