    i have a flock of 17 hens and 1 rooster. one of my golden comet hens, 2 years old this past august, is walking awkward. her legs at the hip seem to be bowed out, shes walking very slowly and close to the ground, comb and face is palish pink. she is eating fine, pooping fine, just seems to be in pain???. no cuts or abraisions anywhere on her body. They eat a layena crumble and are free range and get fruits, veggies, yogurt, etc. could she be deficient in something or have a disease???

    Do a search on egg bound hen and see if it sounds familiar. Do you know if she has been laying recently? Also, have you caught her and given her a good look over including the vent area?
