Is there something I can give my young cockerel for pain?
What kind of problem does he have? Metacam (meloxicam) can be given, but it comes from a vet. A low dose 81mg aspirin can be given twice a day by mouth, but if he is bleeding that could ikncrease it.
Something is wrong with his leg..... he is limping and does not want to walk. Today I am going to isolate him and put food and water close. I didn't know he was in pain or limping. He stays to himself, two young pullets are always with him so I thought they just had their own thing. I am new to chickens and of course learning the hard way. I now know about bumblefoot so I will really inspect his feet. Yesterday I held him and felt his feet all over he never flinched until I flexed the leg. I do know he doesn't want to walk at all. No bleeding. Thanks for the information.
