    Hi everybody! I have a rooster that has something obviously wrong with him. From the time he was about 4 months old, he's never really grown. He has weirdly huge, swollen feet and he can hardly walk. I've done some research about bumble foot, but this seems more severe and that weird lack of growing…? What's wrong with the poor guy and what's the best treatment-putting him out of his misery, or is there something to give him?

    What are you feeding him? What have you tried for treatment? Is he the only chicken you have? Can you post a pic of him and a closeup of his feet? These are things that the very knowledgeable people on BYC will need to know in order to offer some advice.
