    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Sorry about the injured chick, you'll want to post in the Emergencies forum about it https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures Have you looked at the chick closely to see if you can tell if it has a broken leg or anything, is it using both legs and just not able to balance etc? if you can take a video or at least pictures of the chick, that may help people figure out what is hurt.

    I'm sorry to hear about your chick! I would post in the Emergencies section that Kelsie2290 linked to. Good luck!
