    I have two Jersey Giant Roosters Both of them are limping badly on one leg. They get along fine. No visible injury. Could it be the perch. It's made out of 2x2's Sharie

    [​IMG]. Could they have gotten in a tussle? How long have they been showing symptoms?

    They get along good never seen them both one another. a month ago one was limping real bad wouldn't put weight on one leg. He healed up then the other started limping now I have both hobbling around. no hens are having trouble. they are getting very big could it be my perch?

    It could but I honestly doubt it. Do they free range or are they in a pen?
