Rescued a beautiful rooster that had a string tied around his leg. Looked as if it had either been there since he was young or tied so tightly that it cut into his leg clear to the bone! Managed to cut the string/twine from his leg...cleaned with peroxide and smothered in antibiotics, then wrapped in vet wrap. Just worried because he's not moving his toes....worried that all his nerves and muscles were cut. I"m hoping his nerves grow back in time... Why would someone tie a string around his leg?? Anyway just wondering if anyone else has dealt with type of injury? And not culled the bird? Any ideas of something more I should be doing? Talked to an exotic animal doctor who deals with hawks and such....she suggested making a boot out of cardboard, so he uses the foot more, and takes stress off his good leg. Great idea that i will try when his leg heals a little more since it bleeds when jarred in the least little bit (a problem that I deal with daily in changing his bandaging). Just not sure how to fashion the boot with his huge curved spurs.
