My chicken all of a sudden start to limp and she acts like it does not hurt her but I do not know what’s wrong so I can fix it for her. What could it possibly be? And if there is something I can do it fix. Also it looks like it’s her right side of how she is limping.

It's possibly a strain or sprain. I would check the bottom of her feet for sores. Otherwise if it's strained it should improve with time.

Some are better in days, others can be a few months. It just depends on the extent of the injury and whether it's from repetitive use like jumping off of a high roost. Most improve within a week or two generally though. Limit her movements if it doesn't look better within a week or so.
