Carol, I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. We don't have many avian vets on this site. Can you upload a photo(s) of his hocks/redness to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see that icon) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/ My initial thought was an infectious synovitis (joint infection).
