yeah that could be a pretty good reason! I don't know how she did it. I hope the bloods not coming because she's stopping the blood supply by the leg being bent like that. The cut is bang on the joint bit.

Chicks can be pretty tough, so I hope she gets through it.

Live on a 50-cow dairy farm. Have a 30-count flock; includes Buff Orpingtons, Turkens, Leghorns, Rhode Island mixes, and a Black Australorp. Enjoy hunting, drawing, writing, playing the guitar, and nature activities. Believe in God and His Son Jesus Christ. And I love BYC!

It might be a hematoma? ("a solid swelling of clotted blood within the tissues.") they can take a few weeks to resolve and could cause stiffness in the joint.
