    I have a 6 month old bantam silkie roo who about 2-3 months ago hurt his foot. I believe he probably got it stuck in the rabbits wire cage that he liked to go into. At the time (bad mommy) I didn't think much of intervening. NOw with the cold my poor little Roo is having a hard time with his foot again. His toes are almost frozen straight so they have no bend like his other foot. If I warm it in my hand I can bend them but otherwise he doesn't do this on his own. He hops around instead and can't keep up with the rest of the flock,although this doesn't seem to bother him. Any thing I can do or is it too late?

    If he's doing fine thats good. If it was that long ago I don't thinks theres much you can do. But i could be wrong.

    thank you, I figured it was probably too late it's like arthritis acting up in the cold. He adjusted fine, I just worry he's my baby
