today while I was inside and went to check on my chickens I noticed that a hen was waking weird.When she walks she places the left foot forward a lot and that makes her slip a little.When I picked her up and checked to see if there was something both legs and feet looked normal and there didn’t seem to be nothing off.But when I placed her back in the ground her left foot bended and she just fell on her right leg.Her right leg seems fine but it’s the left foot which seems to be injured.She is still eating and walking around but she does lay down more than usual.Does someone know what it could be? Also she sprained her wing about 2 weeks ago and it’s still wrapped so it heals so maybe she jumped off a high place and landed wrong because of the wrapped wing?Or could it be because of the hot weather?it’s almost 100 degrees here.(Right now it’s night but if anyone needs pictures of her leg I’ll post them tomorrow morning)Oh and should I splint her foot which means wrapping it and putting sticks for support?
