    I have two month ond maybe fayoumis chick and the hen and I keep them in my out door coup. Today I found one of my chicks with a small cut on the inner knee area and limping hardcore. So I took him in doors for the night to watch he's acting normal except it dosnt want to put wieght on it's leg..any advice .

    How is your chick doing now? Is it still not using the leg? I think the injury may be more serious than a small cut if it's refusing to stand on it.
