    One of the chicks I have that is a week old has a bum leg now. It does not like to walk but will if needed. Should I take it out and put in a brooder by shef? I think the leg pain comes from a playing injury.

    If it is just limping a bit and not otherwise showing sign of injury I would separate the chick to give it time to heal.
