    Hi all! I got 6 new chickens this week. Today one hurt her leg. Just a little limp I'm pretty sure from trying to jump out of the box. Should I serperate her from the other to heal? I know with older chickens they can pick on a hurt one but not sure about baby chicks. Any advice would be great!

    Leave them together unless there's really a problem. If you need to separate make sure it can still be seen and see the others.
