Over the weekend we had a wonderful sunny day and I had the chance to sit outside with my chickens (and dogs and cats) as they really free ranged throughout the yard. I noticed one of my light brahma hens doing what I can only describe as a silly walk from Monty Python - she'd take a normal step (or 2 or 3) and then the next step would include raising the leg overly high (all the way up to the body) and then sort of awkwardly putting it forward. This happened with both legs and happened intermittently. This hen was born in June of 2009 and is a hatchery hen - she lives with a flock of 11 other hens (5 speckled sussex and 6 more light brahmas). They are fed a mix of Flockraiser and Layena and get fresh greens (lettuce, kale, cabbage, collards....) daily along with as much free range time as I can give them (usually 1-2 hours during the week, longer on weekends). They have all just gone through their first major molt and laying is almost non-existent (due to the molt and the time of year - no worries here). Any ideas on what is going on with the awkward walk?
