    One of my silkie chicks ran the wrong way while I was putting poultry wire up and got a pole dropped on her/him. I picked it up and didn't feel anything broken but one leg felt a little swollen and it was favoring it. I don't know if it should be brought in or left where it is. nothing is bleeding and its acting like its fine other then favoring its leg.
    Also one of my hens has got a huge lump on her back in her hip area that has steadly grown worse. she waddles now instead of the proper chicken walk. we thought one of the roos mounted her wrong but now that I think about it i noticed her crooked tail when we brought her home. Any ideas on any of these problems. C

    I'm not sure about the hen but the chick will be fine. In a few days the swelling will go down. She will be fine.
