Hi

My rhode island red rooster about 5 months old has one leg lame, it is usually lying down and walks crisscrossing. Should i cull the rooster? I have tried giving multivitamins and provide calcium supplements, but no improvement. It seems to get worse as the rooster gains more weight growing up.

It might be a good idea if you think the bird is feeling pain. I've had a few whose legs didn't heal, and they needed to be put out of their misery in the end.
