    I posted about my rooster's foot previously, and it was suggested sprains, gout, or infection, but we're still dealing with him.

    Here's the deal: the he used to be the head fighter, the big guy around, now he takes a back seat to the younger Roos. His foot is a bit more swollen and I have attached a photo. He eats and drinks well, moves around, but he limps when he walks and when standing still, he doesn't like to put it down. As I mentioned, people have suggested gout, sprains, etc. Doesn't quite look like gout, and it's his right foot, so not sure about that. It almost seems like he hurt his ankle/leg and he is still heeling. We are not sure though. Anyone have [​IMG]
