    Long time chicken owner but never had anything like this happen. Our new Salmon Faverolle (3 months old) has lately had problems walking and running and upon closer inspection it looks like her leg is bent in (either broken or dislocated?). Since she was a chick she was always laying down a lot, but we never thought much of it. We really would like to help her, but it's difficult to tell what action to take especially because we don't know exactly what is wrong or when it happened. If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated- we're very worried about her. The only thing we really know is that this is not splay foot.
    Thank you,

    She might have had that since she was a chick. You mentioned the fact that as a chick she would lay down a lot.

    Either way, you should probably have it checked out by a vet.

    Good luck!
