    My chicken, who is about 2 years old all of a sudden started walking crooked. She tends to one side and sort of crosses one foot over the other sideways. She seems to be staying closer to the ground when walking sometimes too. There is nothing wrong that I can easily see on her. She is in the middle of molting. Any ideas on what is wrong, and/or what to do about it?

    I know you posted this over a week ago and you never received a reply. Is your chicken okay?

    Thanks for your concern.The problem seems to have gone away on it's own, and my hen appears to be doing just fine. I did eventually find another post where someone said that sometimes this happens when a chicken is molting,still not really sure why. But it seems to be a thing I didn't need to worry about, thank goodness:)
