    What seems to be wrong with it's leg?
    Does the chick not seem to be able to stand on it?
    Is it curled up next to the body?
    Does it go off to the side?

    We need more information before we can tell you what to do...

    Do the other chicks pick on it? If not, I wouldn't seperate it right away because it may get depressingly lonely. I have seperated one before but ended up giving it a buddy/ nurse, a tiny silkie chick, to keep it company.

    If its leg is bleeding though, get it out because the other will peck at it.
