    My rooster has redness in his legs/feet that worrying me. None of my other chickens have it so i doubt its bugs or anything.. i cant really pick him up because he is SUPER afraid of me.. but i can get rather close.. and i dont see anything wrong...

    How old is he? Is it just red lines down his legs or redness and swelling of the legs?

    Someone else posted on a post similar to this saying sometimes roosters get it for no apparent reason. I'm not sure whether or not that's true though.
