    Broiler chickens can have leg bone deformities that may get worse as they grow. Some can have a ruptured hock suddenly, making them lame. The 2 common deformities are varus or valgus deformity and a third one is TD or tibial dyschondroplasia (twisted tibia.) There is no real treatment for those, unfortunately.

    The other possibility would be Mareks disease, since it can cause the legs to go out in odd angles.

    Here is some reading abnd pictures of leg bone deformities:
