    I picked up this 2 yr old Polish/Silkie cross rooster and have noticed that his wings get caught on his foot feathers and he stumbles alot. Is there anything I can do to make him more comfortable? Maybe trim the feathers? Thanks

    Here is a short video of him "getting caught up"

    And a picture

    Wow he is beautiful! Yes, I would definitely trim feathers, but to be honest, not sure which ones, maybe a bit from both? Poor guy [​IMG] good luck!
