    Hello,
    My wife and I bought one 3 day old Polish chickens off a breeder and everything seemed to be going fine until, at about two months, three out of the five got very hunched backs and their tails bent to one side. We still have one healthy rooster but the others look crippled. Does anyone know what this might be?
    Thank you

    Hi
    After reading another post I'm Farly sure its chicken scoliosis. I'm trying to get some pics off my phone for you. Is it possible for her to lay if she does have this?

    Yeah, I don't think she is eggbound like I thought she might be. Looks like something else. Hope someone can help you out with your girls. (Btw, they are beautiful!)
