    I have a rooster who's spur is curled back and grown into his leg. I removed the spur but I believe he may have an infection. He barley leaves the coop and has grow very quiet. His leg seems to be swollen and he limps a bit. It's been one week since I removed the spur and he doesn't seem much better.Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    I would take him to a vet. It is not as expensive as people make it out to be. Here is a good list of different vets which are known for treating poultry (http://www.poultrydvm.com/poultry-vets.php) however I know there are many more that would be willing to.
