    Any idea what could have happened? Obvious injury? Does it look funny? Blood? Without seeing it or knowing anything else I'd say it was probably injured by another chick. You can separate them until you figure it out in case it's getting picked on.

    i just found out it was dropped and there was no blood and it seems to be walking ok now. should it be a concern. should separate him/her or should i just see how he gets on and. i picked him up and he has strength in both legs because he was still kicking when i picked him up so i presume it isn't broken or anything like that.

    I've seen a lot of chicks get dropped and be perfectly fine. I wouldn't worry about separating him unless he's getting picked on. There's really nothing you can do but wait it out, but I bet he's just fine.
