    how old is she? it could be a birth defect if she is young (splayed legs is what I'm thinking)

    okay, it could also be worms. Is she eating or drinking at all?

    she is kinda just fiddling with her food, so not sure how much she is getting down... Also on one note, I have not seen any worms, but the feces in some members of the flock seem to be pink and reddish. I have asked on BYC several times, but everyone said it was normal:confused: I assumed it is Cocci... But people said it isn't.
