    I clipped my rooster's foot in the chicken house door yesterday and he is limping today. It was not slammed in the door, just gently almost closed on. There is no broken skin but he can't bear his whole weight on it so he is limping badly.
    Is there anything I should do or just wait and see if he walks better in the next couple of days. He seems fine otherwise.

    I would isolate him in a kennel or cage until he is better. That way he's not walking around and putting too much weight on it and injuring it further.

    If it's not broken he should be fine in a few days.
