    Quote:I have seen numerous things cause this in chicks from them Jumping off high places to being accidently stepped on. Dog toying with them or something as simple as a splinter in the foot.
    Chickens are super fast healers and usually do fine in a dark quiet place where they can heal. As long as she is eating and drinking and Poo'ing I would keep doing what your doing Just keep an eye on her.
