Hello... I’m new to this and I have a chick(3 months old)with what seams to be a injured leg. Nothing looks out of shape or exposed just when walking she’s wobbles and she is not walking all that much except to eat and drink. Should I just wait it out of do I need to take her inside to heal just don’t know where to go from here? Any help wanted thanks!

Sometimes pictures of the legs and a short video uploaded to YouTube with a link here can help. Injuries can be common. She might get picked on if she is having trouble walking around. Sometimes separating in a dog crate with food and water, but left with the flock can keep them safe. I would give her some time to be with the others daily.

Was she vaccinated for Mareks disease? Have her legs always looked normally? Slipped tendons, leg bone diseases, and vitamin deficiencies are common. Look for any green bruising, swelling or redness in the affected leg.
