    I'm sorry to hear this :hugs

    Can you get some pictures of your chick or a video? (for video upload to youtube, provide a link)
    Give us a little more information:
    Is the chick able to walk?
    Is the leg swollen or turned funny?
    How old is your chick?

    What happened to the foot, did it get hung on something?
    If you can post a photos of the foot or how he stands that may be helpful.

    What a cute chick.
    I'm sorry that he's injured. Is the leg black from bruising or could he have gotten dirt or poop on it?
    Did he possibly get burned by the lamp?
    I will try to help if you want to give a little more information.

    My chicken had a broken leg too and what I did was take some cotton balls and put it on a piece of wrap and gently wrapped it around my chickens leg.it took my chicken about two weeks for my chicken to walk normally and then she started to take dirt baths and do stuff that she could not do before.
