    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. It's been a couple days and 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 :(

    Have you tried giving her aspirin?
    You might have to make a splint for her

    No I haven't given her anything.. Wasnt sure what I could give her. How could I do that?? Should I take her to the vet to get checked out?

    If it is bad then maybe you should take her to the vet.
    You just crush up the aspirin so she can digest it easily.
    Is she eating and Drinking?
    The vet could make sure that she doesn't have any broken bones and will give you better advice than me lol.

    We might take her just in case! But I'm going to try that aspirin first. Yes she has been eating and drinking, she's pretty healthy other than her leg being hurt.
