Hi everyone. This morning I opened up the brooder and found one chick down with an injured leg. She is still feisty and eating and drinking and peeping but I imagine she is in a lot of pain. She doesn’t seem to be able to o put any weight on it.

Can I splint this? Or another idea? I’ve seen “chick chairs” but I’m not sure how to make one.

It appears that her wing on the opposite side is also injured although maybe she is just compensating?
