    What is this caused by, how could she have gotten it, and do I need to do something? Thank you!

    from the picture you gave me it looks like only wry tail, with is when the tail gets broken heals leaning to a side, or the chicks are born with it. it only their tail crooked or its entire lower body? I cannot really tell from the picture. how long has the hen had this condition, if it just happened odds are she has a broken tail. wry tail is harmless and will only hurt her dignity. as long as she is not acting weird or sickly i would say shes just fine and will continue to live life with a crocked tial. if she is acting stressed and her butt really is crooked it may mean she is eggbound but i dout that is relly the case.
