    Ok, so I came home tonight and one of my young game hatch chickens was having a walking problem. It seems that she can't or won't use her right foot. I have checked her over and I cant feel anything swollen or broken and nothing is lodged in the foot. Everything feels normal compared to the other foot. I have seen her flat foot once or twice, but normally she keeps it curled up. She does not make any sounds when I play with her foot. Any idea what this could be? Here are a couple of videos. Oh and I am still not sure if it is a hen or a roo so I am calling it a she. I have brought her inside for the night and hope a little inside R&R will help with the healing.
