    Hi,
    I just recently was watching my chickens run around, and saw that both of my rooster's feet are bright red and are limping... they are free run chickens and I have a patch of concrete in the back where they run around. I don't know if that has something to do with it. Please help!!

    by the way one rooster is a bantom and the other is a buff.

    Thanks. I was watching them closer today and the only one that does it is the buff roo. Do you think its because of how big he is? I looked at those bumblefoot pics and they dont have that.

    I don't think size has a lot to do with redness.

    I have a Buff Orpington cockeral right now. Just started practicing his crow. His legs/feet are incredibly red/pink and shiny.

    Is he still limping? Maybe just sore from jumping down from the roost.
