    My 5 month old Welsumer Roo has been standing very often on one foot. Always holds his left leg up. Is this Bumblefoot? Pics attached.

    The foot looks fine....No bumble foot there. I have done the surgery before, and really, his foot looks good. I don't see any splinters or anything......Maybe he has sprainged it somehow. maybe you could cage him for a while so he can get some rest and stay off that leg a bit.....He may improve with time.

    No bumblefoot there.

    Looked like he might have jumped off the perch and land hard, thus injured or twisted his foot somehow. Happens to my girls once in a while when they do their "crash" landings.

    Either rubber mat or deeper bedding will help aleviate the leg and foot injuries.
