    He was all fine. No injuries. I suddenly found him limping and it's getting worse. He doesnt have anything in his feet or no scaly legs. Please help me.

    Hello!

    Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC. He may have sprained his leg, if nothing is broken. Good luck with your boy.

    Welcome to BYC!

    Can you give us some more information?

    How old is he?
    What types of food/treat do you feed?
    Can you post photos/video of your rooster, his legs, feet, hocks?
    Any other symptoms - respiratory distress, coughing, wheezing, runny eyes/nose, sneezing, etc.?
    How long have you had him?

    In the meantime, it's best to separate him to reduce his activity level. If you have one, place him in a wire kennel inside the run or near his flock so they can see each other. Provide him with poultry vitamins that contain Riboflavin(B2) and make sure he is eating. You can offer some chopped egg or tuna for some extra protein.

    Hello, thanks alot. He's 8 months old. He lives in our house, we just have one. He's all fine but it seems that her leg is a bit swollen, not completely. It doesnt appear that she has bumble feet at all. She eats rice, tomato (favourite), vegetables, eggs, a bit of maze. We also feed her 2 drops of vitamin syrup (A to Z) almost everyday.

    There can be many reason that can cause him to limp. Injury, disease or nutritional deficiency.
