Help - 4 month old Buff Orpington can't stand or walk

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We have a four month old Buff Orpington pullet who, until recently, appeared quite healthy. About 2 weeks ago, her feathers started to become puffed out and she developed what looked like a goiter under her chin. However, a few days ago, she lost her ability to stand and walk. When I pick her up, her legs just flop down.

I've attached a picture of her in her unfortunate state.

Any idea what's wrong and what we can do to help her?
