    I have a year and half old Royal Palm tom thank will randomly jump and walk backwards. He doesn't do this very often maybe once every few days. Does anyone know what might make him do this or if I should be concerned? He's been doing this for about a month.

    Thank you

    I have a almost blind rooster that does that, so check his eyes, otherwise is he doing during displaying, maybe he has a painful feather, check his feet too. Just a few possibilities.

    Thank you for the suggestions, I checked his eyes and feet tonight and they look alright. It might be a painful feather or a strange display when he's fighting with our other tom
