    I feel bad. I was taking my chickens 2 months old or so, out of the playpen in the yard and putting them back in their run and one got away. I was chasing it down and stepped on it's leg/foot. Now it's hopping around and standing on one foot. I felt the foot and it doesn't feel broken or anything. I don't need a chicken dinner right now so just let it go and see what happens? I put it up at the top of the coop away from the other chickens so it doesn't have to perch or anything, sitting on a flat shelf.
