Hey, so. I don't know what's going on, but I check chickens at 7am, fed at 9 am. And now I've got an injured chicken at 12:30 pm. I walk out to my coops and the little man is just hoping around on one leg, not using his other at all. Brung him in and tried finding the problem, but feeling his leg, everything seams normal. Splinted it up, so he can at least stand with stabilization, but still hopping around. Any ideas?

I have no idea.
Could be a sprain or injury. Limiting his activity may also help. If you have vet care, an xray could reveal a break or fracture.

Is he willing to eat/drink?
