Yesterday I went to check on my hens and Roos (house separately) and one of my roos was sitting on the ground and didn't get up and normally he is all over the place. So I went in and went to pick him up and instead of him running franticly away he just laid there. I picked him up and removed him from there run and examined him for any swelling or dislocations. I didn't hear crunching and he didn't seem to be in pain, but chickens are good at hiding that. I pushed on the center of his pad and his claws didn't move. I moved him into the house and he slept eventually. This morning he wasn't eating or drinking anything.
