please help me! about a month ago, i noticed my spangled oegb rooster was limping slightly. i checked him over an found a giant scab on his left thigh; i have no idea how or when he got it....i never noticed any bleeding/limping etc. the wound was a little swollen but not too bad. he had no other visible wounds. i gave him a bath to clean everything up and make it more managable and put him in a clean cage in the basement. for about a week i applied neosporin twice a day and for a little while it was looking better, but not anymore. when i went down to feed him this morning i found that he could no longer walk properly; he just hobbled around on his hock. his entire thigh is enourmously swollen up, two or three times it's normal size. the skin around the wound is a pale, sickly yellow all up and down his leg. he does have interest in food and water. his comb is pale and shrivled as are his wattles and his face is very pale. he lost his spurs around the same time as i noticed the wound in the first place (courtesy of a few of my other roosters who i no longer have) and the stubs are also a little swelled up and blackened. the strange thing is that the wound does seem to be healing, albeit, slowly, but the skin around the scab it new and pink and shiny. please please help, i don't know what to do for him! obviously just letting him rest for a while so it can heal itself is not going to work. i've already lost four chickens this year and i'm not ready to lose another. i do have a vet who will treat chickens, but it would be expensive, so if there is something i can do at home, that would be best. oh, i should also add that he was recently treated along with the rest of the flock for an outbreak of worms and he doesn't seem to have quite recovered from that yet, no doubt due to his injury. they were treated with Wazine 17. i think that is the only medication he's had since his injury. let me know if i missed something... please, does anyone have any advice for me?
