My mother's chicken is walking around with her legs spread very wide... not really bow legged, but sort of. We are both fairly new to raising chickens and don't really know what this could be. I wondered about her being egg bound, but my mother doesn't think there is an egg stuck. She has been this way for more than a week now. She seem ok... but I don't think she has layed, and she looks uncomfortable. yesterday I felt like she was panting, so I want to intervene and help her if I can. She is a golden/red sex link, but is fairly small. She and her sister lay jumbo eggs, one of them has laid an extremely large egg before.
