Chicken is hopping It is using both legs but is hopping

My chicken is hopping.  It is using both legs but only one is hurt.  What should I do?  It is half limping half hopping. I saw some chickens fly into the fence.I think it was one of them.

Bumble foot is not caused by banging into a fence.  You can put  bumblefoot into the search box and  symptoms should pop up. If it sounds like what your bird has, please post in "emergencies, diseases,injuries, cures" thread.

I noticed that one of my hens was hopping on one foot today. We soaked her feet in warm water and Epsom salts and I cleaned her foot with dawn dish washing liquid. Then I sprayed with a spray I got at TSC. Aft r that I applied neosporine and wrapped with the wrap they sell for horses legs. I cut small strip. She's is a separate cage in the garage since the other hens started pecking at the bandage.
