We have an Americana hen that, when she was a very young baby (days old), walked in circles, head turned to the side. We didn't think she'd be ok, and didn't do anything different from her sisters, but she finally straightened out (after weeks). Her name is "Merry"("Go Round"). There are nutritional supplements you can give that support neurological health, if that's the problem. B vitamins are good, as well as selenium+vit E, and ginko biloba, off the top of my head. Maybe she just needs time to straighten up? (tight fit in those eggs!) Good luck. P.S. She is an excellent layer!
