    One of my silkies wouldn't come out of the coop this morning, so I went to check on her and she was basically limping and dragging one foot along. I picked her up and that leg/foot from the knee down seemed to not have any response, I'm guessing one of the bigger chickens jumped off the roost and landed on her. The other leg seemed fine, any suggestions on what I can do to help, it didn't feel like anything was broken but there definitely wasn't any movement or response form the knee joint down.
