    Welcome to BYC!

    Can you take her to a vet?

    Can you post a picture or a video? It could be a bad sprain or a broken bone, so vet care would be a good option if possible. She also could have something neurological such as possible Mareks disease, but ifthere is swelling of the leg, that sounds more like an injury. Make sure that she is able to reach food and water by placing her upright in a rolled towel or look at some pictures of homemade chicken slings.
