In the Brooder

Hoping someone can help. My Black Australorp Rooster is limping badly, as in won't put any weight on it at all. When I checked his leg/foot about a week ago there was no swelling, no peeling, a possible scratch but I wasn't positive - and if it was a scratch there was no dried blood. Today, however, there is considerable swelling where the base of the toes are, enough that I can definitely see its bigger than the other foot. It's not hotter than the other foot, and no pinker than the other. No peeling. I'm stumped. He's 10 months old and my only Roo. suggestions??? Oh and he's not been into anything that I'm aware of. They roam my yard all day and coop at night. No new food, etc.
