It doesn't look like bumblefoot. It could be a tendon issue.
Ok so I gave her a scrambled egg this morning for more nutrients. And now my daughter just facetimed me to say she just pooped liquid? And she is still walking on her own feet and her right leg is just giving out randomly. I’m so worried!!!

Did you read the articles in my previous thread about varus valgus leg deformities? It looks like her right leg may be affected by the bowing out that is seen in your video. The tendon can become very weakened or even rupture. As long as she can get around to food and water, she may learn how to handle her disability. This chick appears to have the same deformity in her right leg:

is this typical of happening so late in her age? My girl is like 25-30 weeks... and it just all of the sudden happens?

Hello!

I have had my hens for about 4 months now and my Easter Egger has not laid since I’ve had her. I noticed she has been waking funny for the last few months now, she eats fine, drinks, doesn’t stray from the other flock until it gets semi dark and then she is the first one to bed. She seems to be molting because I can see new feathers coming in. I posting a video link here of her walking w her very high steps, hoping it’s not Mareks! My other hens seem totally healthy, laying, and eating just fine.

She is a little over a year I believe.
