    First you should ask for
    Some information on how to confirm
    It's a broken leg because if you try to fix
    A broken leg that might not be the problem
    Goodluck

    I definitely think it is broken now that I am home to look at the chick. It's leg is stuck out behind it and it REALLY swollen, it won't get up or walk now.
