I have had a Polish hen ever since I bought her as a baby chick and she is absolutely beautiful! I finally found a Polish rooster to go with her, of course I wanted to hatch some babies from the two of them. I separated the two of them from the rest of my chickens, they were in a cage off the ground, the bottom of the cage is wire of course (rat wire I believe it is called). The hen had no problems at all and still doesn't, but after they had been in this cage for approximately 6-8 weeks my rooster started sitting down a lot and acted like his legs were unable to hold him up. I got him out and checked out his legs and feet and he didn't act as if he was hurting at all. My neighbor told me that he could have hurt his feet on the wire. I moved them back into the lot with the other chickens which is on the ground. This has been at least 3 weeks ago and he is no better. We do not have a vet around here for animals like chickens. I do not know what it could be. HELP!
