    My 2 year old hen just sit down and can't go anywhere.

    If I stand her up, she stands, but won't walk.
    I kept her in the porch all day... and she never got up to walk.
    She's eating & drinking.... and pooping!
    Looks good... acts good.

    She's not in distress & I touch her leg & hip with no problem.
    I took her out in the grass at dark.
    He wanted to head the the coop, took about 5 steps and laid down... and stayed there.

    I'm assuming to just keep her with me for a few days?
    Not sure what happened?

    Maybe it isn't a leg problem??
    I can't figure it out.....

    When she does walk she waddles pretty bad, then loses her balance.... then she just sits there.

    She hasn't laid eggs in 6 months..... could it be something else?
