I wasn't sure whether or not to post this in emergencies, but could find nowhere else. My little Silkie chick (only 5 days old) is favouring her right leg and limping about. I checked and could find no reason for her to be limping. There are no wounds and the leg looks perfectly normal. She's still eating and drinking, but if she loses her balance from limping, she simply lays down and stays for a few minutes, usually near the feeder, which puts her right where she's prone to be trampled. I worry because the leg she is holding up is intriguing to the other chicks and I don't want her to get pecked on badly. She's just so tiny compared to the other chicks and I worry. I'll be keeping a close eye on her, but if it doesn't improve, shall I seperate her? I'm not sure if maybe she just got a piece of shaving lodged in her foot or something...it's so hard to tell because her legs and feet are covered in feathers. This may sound silly, but can chickens do the equivalent of stubbing a toe? They've taken to trying to scratch the food out of the feeder, so maybe she nicked herself or just knocked a toe funny, which would be hard for me to see. She does seem to be adapting by holding out her wing to balance as she stands.
