Hello BYC Friends! Yesterday afternoon I found Jasper, my cochin rooster, resting in the chicken yard. He allowed me to pick him up an handle him (usually he squirms). His left eye was partially closed and watery, and his right foot looked floppy. I kept him inside overnight to rest. Today his eye is recovered (it was windy yesterday, likely it dusty or debris). However, he is favoring his right foot, limping, keeping his right foot up as much as possible. Otherwise, his behavior is normal. He wants to move around, jump on hens, he's eating and drinking. No one is picking on him. On examination last night, his injured right foot looked the same as his uninjured left one. No breaks in the skin, his toes looked fine, no visible wounds on his feet. Yet, his injuries foot seemed "floppier" than it should be. My question for those of you with foot injury experience: * If his foot was broken, wouldn't he be in pain and show signs of pain? * Wouldn't his behavior change if it was broken? * Should I make a vet appointment now, and take him in? * Or should I wait and see: give him some time at home to recover, in case it's a sprain? * Do you think he can he be with the flock, as long as he's moving around okay, if slowly? * Is there anything else, those of you with foot injury experience, that I should know or look for? Thanks kindly dear all!
