I don't know how it happened, but I'm fairly certain one of my chicks hurt its wing. It's about one month old and I have it separated from the others. I'm not sure if its broken or cut or something, but if you lift up the wing, there's a little bit of dried blood. If I pick it up and force it off the ground, it will stand and maybe walk around just a bit, but, other than that, it just lays down in one spot all day. When it does walk a bit, it cant hold its balance and it generally just falls over. It is eating and drinking fine. What, if anything, can I do to help it?

you can try making a splint for the wing out of vet wrap
.see if the extra support helps her out. vet wrap is usually found in the equine area of the feed store. its made from a rubbery self adhering material. you can put the wing in place and carefully wrap her. hopefully the extra support would help And help it heal by keeping it into position. best of luck! hope she heals soon!
