Turkey chick in pain from foot

I have a 17 day old chick which is doing great but today it went under my dog and she didn’t know that it was under her so she took a step and stepped on the leg of the turkey and the turkey tried pulling away and it hurt it’s leg/foot so I quickly picked it up and put it in it’s cage to rest but it kept trying to walk and was limping bad and pecking at its foot. Is there anything to do to help? Just want to make sure that it will most likely be okay and survive.

She might just be favoring it because it was stepped on, but feel the bones to check if it's broken- chick bones are more fragile after all. If it is, you can wrap it with Vet Wrap. If it is not, or you can't tell, just keep her in for a couple days and feed her normally- see if she improves.
