Or something similar? My teen son went out to the coop to give the chickens some old bread, and he said one of them was laying on her side with one leg out. When he went back, she was up again. He said it looked like there was a cut on a leg..... I went out there and observed for awhile but didn't see anything out of the ordinary. The chicken was walking around acting like a chicken. Didn't seem to be favoring any leg or have trouble standing. Is it normal chicken behavior, or do I need to be watching for something? Can the mulch bedding splay their legs?
