So my daughter was playing with the chickens we just got and she was holding one and it started to flap it’s wings and she got scared and dropped it only 50cm off the ground and we think it hit its head on the way down and we think it may have broken it’s leg it can’t walk on one leg at all

Pictures of the bird's leg? Is it eating or drinking? If you feel along the leg, does it feel like there's a break anywhere?

If it’s putting any weight on it’s leg, it’s probably not broken. Most likely a sprain, but keep an eye on it. If it doesn’t get any better in a few days, update us. Also, if you see any green spots start to form, update us.
Thank you so much will definitely update you

Separate her and feel along the length of the bad leg, all the way up to the hip joint. If anything feels broken or misaligned, that's where the problem is. Offer her food and water, does she eat and drink?
Yup put some below
