Lame leg?

Went out to the coop this morning and found one of our young Jersey giant hens laying in the corner not moving. I grabbed her up and brought her in. She was a bit cold and wet from laying on the ground (been getting a lot of rain everything is wet). Got her warmed up and dried off but noticing she can’t move her left leg at all. Right leg is fine. Even when holding her up it just hangs. Nothing feels broken or out of place. Not sure what to do. Any ideas?

How old is she?
Is she laying eggs yet?

Photos of how her leg looks may be helpful. Just hanging, it sounds like an injury.
Keep her hydrated and eating.
She’s about 5 months old or so. Not sure if she has started laying yet or not. I’ll grab some pics in the morning but I haven’t seen any sign of any type of external injury My only thought is if she possibly damaged her hip area somehow
