    i have a chicken that one of her legs is bent backwards, i keep her in what used to be the hen house slash run. My other four girls now just free range all day in a 5o by 50 pen and roost on top of an old swing, anyway hazel lays on her bottom side all day she has to hop to go anywhere the other chicken try to hurt her when she is out my ? is there anything i should worry about. the ground is dry but she moves very little

    She is about 8 months old, not sure of the breed. This is a birth defect-we were just worried about her laying on the ground constantly. Didn't know if it would get irritated. We haven't wormed her, but give her DE.
