    Hello all. I am new here and I did a search on broken leg and all, but I am still unsure what is wrong with my chickens leg. She's 8 weeks old. As you can see in the picture, she can put weight on it but limps as her leg bend outward when she puts more weight on it. If she steps wrong, she will almost fall down and gives out a little holler. If I put my finger under her foot, she will grab my finger with her toes. Please help diagnose what's wrong with her. Thank you in advance for the help...[​IMG]
