My 4 week old chick has a broken leg!

i think because a heat lamp happened to fall on his leg, he's eating and drinking just fine. But he's doing the splits and i don't know if thats natural or not? Please help!

I had a duck once that got his leg stuck in a hole in the chicken wire and it was late at night so we weren't able to get to him and then when we found him his leg was swollen and appeared broke so we splinted it and 2 months later he was healed up and perfect. Now he runs around all happily with the other ducks. So maybe you should splint it. I hope this helps.

Take the poor creature to the vet! If its too bad they might euthanize him or amputate his leg.
