    Has she got into any mouldy food??

    Have you separated her from the rest of your flock??

    There are a number of problems a chicken can get??

    Wobbly legs maybe a sign of Mareks
    look that up and see if any symptoms are the same

    Do not be alarmed until you know for sure

    Good luck
