    I have 1-2 week old Rhode Island Red Pullets. My 3 year old daughter accidently stepped on one. It is not using one of its legs. It is able to hop around on one leg. I articulated the leg and the joints and bones seem intact. Could it just be a sprain that would repair itself? Any suggestions or ways to save the chick would be appreciated.
