    My 2 week old pullet has an injured leg... I noticed that she was limping when she was walking, I'm not sure if the other chicks jumped and landed on her to hurt her leg but I separated her from the box and have just been keeping an eye on her to hope she would get better. She hasn't improved any, she still eats and drinks but she doesn't walk on the leg she has her claws curled up and the leg up to her chest. Any suggestions?? Or is it to late to help my chick :(

    No I do not have any right now. The leg does look Alittle, but barely, more swollen than the other one but it just won't walk on it. You can tell its stiffer than the other one too.

    There is a picture of her leg. As you can tell her claws are curled up and she doesn't lay on that side of her body
