    We just noticed that one of our chickens, has an odd thing happeneing to one of her legs. It appears to not be standing straight like the other, it looks like it is bending backwards, it has not slowed her down any, but we were wondering if it could be broken.

    We found 1 of our chics ( about 4months old now) has something up with its left leg. It wont stand hardly but seems to be eatting an drinking fine so we put it by itself back in the chis tractor an well see what the next few days bring. If your hen isnt bothered by it then I think I would just leave her be. Hope she gets better soon!!
