    my chicken had a very scary incident a while back.
    all the sudden she had trouble walking and kept falling over.
    we thought she was going to die. we still dont know what happened that day. we think she might have eaten something like a pesticide that paralyzed her. anyways, she recovered in a week or so. this was good, but now she has a funny walk. she walks sideways and is somewhat clumsy. this isnt a serious issue, its just.....weird.

    anyone know what this is??

    Sorry to hear that you chicken has this problem. It just sounds like this is a side
    affect from what was wrong with her to begin with. Hope she continues to get better and the strange walk goes away
