    I just noticed today when I let my 1 year old rooster Kernal out that he is limping. He's is his normal self but just limps when he walks or hops when he runs. Nothing else is wrong with him. I'm hoping he just spranged something from jumping off his 7ft tall perch outback yesterday. I looked at his legs and nothing seems to be hurting him or swollen. Can I give him some asprin to help him? and how much would I give him? Please help this is my baby boy.

    I believe its his left foot. But I can't see any wound or anything. He acts normal coming up and doing his dance,crows,eats, and drinks.

    I have him in his own cage now, Even though he doesn't like it very much but he will settle down soon. I disolved a baby asprin in 1 gallon of water and poured some into his water dish. I will do ANYTHING for my baby. If there is anything else I can do for him to keep him comfortable let me know please! Thanks.
