    A hen hatched a few chicks and stepped on this one I'm afraid. I had to bring it inside because it couldn't move but now it hobbies on one foot. It seems that it's joint (hock I believe) where the shank (leg) meets the thigh is out of place. It seems like I might be able to pop it back in but I'm too scared to do it. Any ideas or anyone know of that will even work?
