    VOX Chillin' With My Peeps

    My Rooster has hurt his leg. Heres the story. I have 3 roosters. 1 stays in a cage all to himself, he is the most loving thing ever, he begs for you to pick him up and ride him on the 4 wheeler or lawn mower. now the other 2 are not very friendly. when i let my loving one out he will run over to the others and fight through the fence. But anyhow, we have stoped letting them fight by watching where he goes when hes out of his cage. Well last night i put him up gave him fresh food and water. now this morning and aftnoon he was fine. But now he is limping. It dosent hurt him if we mess with it. and he can put some pressure on it. and i notice he dosent sit on his perch now, he will lay on his side to keep the pressure off of it, do yall think he will be ok, im really scared. plz reply.

    Quote:Nope, but your other birds could. But if there's a wound, then that's probably the problem. How bad is it? Is there any discharge?

    nope no discharge, wasent big enough bleed it dont think, and this dont make sence, i just went out there after 4 hour and hes up on his roasting stick sleeping, if it was serious would he still be able to jump up there and sit to sleep? Do you think i should take out the stick to keep him from jumping to prevent worse injury?

    I don't understand. Are you saying he injuried his leg? Can you see an injury? What are you talking about a stick?

    Quote:His roost, I think. Unless the OP was trying to be "punny" by calling it a "roasting" stick... [​IMG]
