    Ok, so I made the name of it up, but seriously.. has anyone encountered this?

    I have a mixed breed hen who is about a year old now. As a chick she was fine, like any other, but as her body developed.. her legs didn't. Her feet are a normal size, but from her foot to the hock joint, the leg is maybe about an inch/inch and a half long. She doesn't walk - she waddles. Its actually kind of cute. Shes a sweet little thing, and I wouldn't change her, but I was wondering if anyone has had this happen.
