This chick has been hopping around on one leg since it hatched on Saturday. It seems to be thriving other wise, eating, drinking, all the same things that the other chicks are doing except for scratching. Thoughts?

Maybe its leg was injured in transit. It must hurt him if he won't put weight on it. Poor guy (or gal). My donkey stepped on one of my Plymouth Rock roo's legs and he carried it for about a week before he would put any weight on it. It got better on it's own and he ended up being completely normal.
