    As long as there is no funny odor, discharge, wheezing, or spreading of the swelling, it sounds like this is related to the injury.

    I'd keep him quarantined (as we should always do with new chickens), for a minimum of two weeks and watch him for any respiratory distress.

    If he passes the health check, release him into the wild with your flock. :)
