Chicken doesn't want to walk

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Our silver laced Wyandotte has been lying on the ground with her legs sprawled out. There are no cuts and they don't appear broken. She has moved herself around a bit by flapping her wings. She hasn't laid any eggs yet, she is probably about ready to start laying though. She has been like this for 4 days now, we brought her inside to make sure she gets food and water. Any ideas folks???

Do you think that her legs are paralyzed? Can you post any pictures? Is she acting normal otherwise? Is she eating, drinking, etc.?

 

Thanks!

I don't know what's wrong with her then.:/It's strange that she has her leg out behind her like that. Do you think that she might have just sprained it? Do you think that electrolytes in her water might help?:idunnoIt's good that she's eating and drinking. :)

 

She's really pretty! I hope that she gets better soon!
