I've been out of the country for a couple of weeks. While gone, my husband found my rooster one evening stuck. He had somehow gotten his toe caught in something in our lumber-shed, lost his balance, and ended up hanging upside-down for who-knows how long. He weighs a good 8 pounds, and was hanging by the last joint of his toe. When my husband found him, he thought he was dead. After flipping him right-side-up, he started coming back to life, but couldn't walk. His leg got a good massage, and he was placed on a roost for the night,. The next morning, he barely had a slight limp. This was a week ago. There were no cuts or lacerations on his toe. He does not have gangrene. All toes have correct color and are warm. He doesn't really limp. Rather, it's an odd walk. Instead of rotating his leg in a fluid motion when he walks, that leg kind of jerks out straight, his toes flare out in mid-air, then he seats the foot down on the ground. That sound bad, but it's really not real obvious. I've been really watching for signs of injury, so I'm able to notice it. Now if I were hanging upside down by my toe for many hours, I'd be walking funny too. I assume he has both ligament, tendon, and muscle-strain. Now that I've eliminated cuts/infection/gangrene, are there any other things I should be on the lookout for? Is there anything else that can go terribly wrong for him? Is there anything I can do to help him regain his normal gait faster? I'm a little worried that he might have some nerve-damage. It almost looks like he's feeling the air trying to feel where the ground is. He might be numb.
