    My rooster had a limp about a month ago and we didn't think anything of it but now he cant walk anymore.I'm not sure but I think the injured foot is a little more swollen than the other

    Can you post a picture of it, especially the bottom of it?
    Is the bottom red and swollen? Sounds like it could be bumblefoot. You could look at photos of bumblefoot online and see if it looks similar?

    I do not think my rooster has bumble foot because I see no swells,bumps or anything sticking out of it.

    Both cases look like BAD mite infestations.

    I don't know if you can see but on the top of the foot the joint looks swollen.

    Oh,well is there anyway I could get him up and walking again? I knew he had scaly leg mites before and we put Vaseline on his legs and put anti leg mite powder in their coop.But he still seemed to get worse over time.Is there a possibility that he broke his foot and it got infected?

    I tagged the experts. They should be able to help you more.
