Hello Agam,

we need to get a little more information:

  1. how old is your rooster?
  2. how many other chickens do you have and what age?
  3. where do you keep him: inside the house or outside in a run or free-ranging etc.?
  4. how big is your coop? And the run?
  5. what do you feed your chickens?
  6. is your rooster vaccinated against Marek's disease?
  7. when did you last de-worm your chickens?
  8. did you just recently add some other birds to your flock?

After considering your answers several things come to mind:

  • All day in coop leads to lack of natural sunlight = vitamin D3 deficiency
  • Feeding wheat and grass only leads to lack of protein, other vitamins, calcium and minerals. You might want to add a vitamin and electrolyte supplement to their water dispenser
  • Maybe in need of de-worming (intestinal parasites lead to nutrients deficiency and even death). There are different dewormer available depending on the country you live
  • Maybe lack of proper exercise etc. due to only two hours outside coop.
At around 3-4 month of age cockerels of some breeds can develop leg issues due to their rapid growth. Even more so when suffering from vitamin and minerals deficiency in combination with lack of proper exercise.
