    I have one of my hens suddenly not leave the nest for 3 days, I figured her as a broody. When I checked on her her, she couldnt stand and her feet are crossed. I brought her in and have been feeding her, she is eating and drinking fine, but still no improvement in walking. She tries to stand but doesnt do much more than flop around

    You may need to keep her in isolation, or if it isn't to much trouble. CULL.
