    Eggcessive is right - pictures would be really useful to help us see what is going on.

    Can you describe the symptoms a bit - what does his foot look like? Is he limping / refusing to walk on it? How long has it been like this?

    Bumblefoot is an uncomfortable and long-term condition for a bird, but unless it has become severely infected it is not usually life-threatening.

    The more information you can give us about your roo and his foot the better we will be able to help you.

    How did your rooster get along? Did you have to do the surgery?
