    What do you feed her?
    How many other birds do you have? Any of them showing symptoms?
    How do you house her? How big is the coop and run?
    Any signs of damage to her legs? See if the joints work, feel for swelling, inflammation, or broken areas, see if she responds with pain when you touch her.

    Layena crumples they have had it for years and we have four other birds we keep them in a big shed with a dog run and we have had that setup for years and had no issues amd we checked her legs amd felt if they were broken and we couldnt feel anything and its almost like she cant feel them.
