    I have a 2 yr old Rooster who was grazed by a car a couple of hours ago. He is not putting any weight on his leg and is not letting me get near him. He isnt bleeding that I can tell....... He does sit down and I put some water out near him but he doesn't seem right....... what should I do?

    If at all possible catch him and put him in a carrier, pen or someplace dark with food and water. He is probably in shock and the less stress on him the better

    i have no clue what you should do..but i would think you would need to examine the injuries more closely to know for sure what your dealing with..it's obvious he might have a broken leg.. like i said i wouldn't know what to about that either except call my vet and ask...
