    My rooster has been limping for the past two days and it keeps getting worse. There are are no visible problems with his foot, just a blue-ish green mark in between two of his toes. No other birds in the flock have the same problem. What do you think it is and how can I fix it?

    I don't have personal experience, but my first thought says bumble foot. Have you looked at the bottom of his foot?

    Yes I have, there is no swelling.

    Not sure for sure, depending on where your located I would wonder frost bite. But from what I hear that tends to be blackish.

    My only other thought - and i'm hoping someone wiser than i will help you out - is scaley leg mites or a small break. Of course i would expect a break to cause swelling. Maybe if you posted a picture, that would ring some bells with the experts.

    I can't find my camera cord! [​IMG] [​IMG] It's not getting worse, but it's not better, either! There is some redness and minor swelling around the joint near his toenail. He gets mad when I touch it, so it's hurting him.Help!!!!!
