My rooster, Dots, has a limp tonight.
He wasn’t limping this morning or afternoon, so I noticed it right away.
I immediately checked him over for signs of a leg or foot injury, or signs of bumblefoot. Nothing out of the ordinary, but he’s definitely favoring his right leg when he walks.
A google search for ‘limping chicken’ leads me this post about ‘how to fix a gimpy chicken’ which covers not just leg injuries and bumblefoot but egg-bound (Dots is NOT egg bound. He’s a boy). The posts suggests a nice warm bath and half a baby aspirin every day until limp goes away.
My question is, is this a valid treatment?????
