Okay, I'm still debating culling a crippled bantam chick. He will be the only rooster in a mixed flock of bantam and standard hens. He will not be able to mount them because of his leg which is bent outwards at the hock so that he ends up limping along with his one good leg and one toe of the other. He loses his balance a bit, but still gets around. He will not be able to run but will be in a secure enclosure and occasionally be allowed to free range. Because he will not be able to lead his flock like a normal rooster, will he fill inadequate? I realize that I am applying human emotions to a chicken, but my concern is that since he will not be able to function like his instincts tell him to, he will not be happy. I do not want to cull, but I want to do the right thing. I have no issue having a special needs chicken, but I don't want to be selfish either. Opinions are welcomed.
