    SHe is an ameraucana hen sho is 22 months old. I saw her sitting in the corner of the coop on the floor and touched her to see that she was OK and when she went to get up a bunch of males went to jump her so I am not sure if they hurt her leg or legs. I put her in a crate by herself now for 2 days and still the same. Everyone else in the coop is fine.

    In case you haven't done it already, try doing a search for "chicken walking on hocks".
    I think there is more than one condition that can cause it.
    Hope you find your answer-poor baby.
