    Can you get some photos of the leg as it's turned inward or a video of how she is walking?

    I would still provide her with vitamins, especially the B2. It's possible she may have sprained it, but bone deformity or slipped tendon comes to mind. Does she have any swelling at any of the joints on that leg?

    Good morning! Daisy has been eating and drinking without me needing to prompt her, and her crop was empty this morning. She is still pooping normal poops regularly. She didn’t walk very much this morning, and I have to go volunteer at my local SPCA, but when I’m back I’ll make sure to take a video and post it here

    Ok here is the link to the video:

    I hope that this gives you the information that you need to figure out what is wrong with her left leg/foot. Please let me know if you need a better video!

    Excellent video. She’s a beauty!.
    I’m no expert on injuries, but I don’t get the feeling that it’s broken. More like a hip or ‘pelvis’ issue. She seems alert and like she wants to be running around. :idunno

    Thank you! She definitely has some interesting colouring/patterning, for sure!

    Glad to hear that, we didnt think things were broken, but I agree there is definitely some sort or problem. I’ll wait for @Wyorp Rock to chime in as well.

    She does like to go outside a lot, and is quite alert. She always heads over to the coop to visit her sisters, haha!

    Have you dewormed your flock?

    And also did you read the link posted about Mareks on page 4?

    No they haven’t been dewormed yet, I thought you did that when they were at 6 Mont he’s old? And I did read about the symtoms and she doesn’t fit most f them except for: Paralysis of one or both legs, and sometimes wings. This can include staggering, increasing loss of motor control in one or both legs, inability to stand or balance.

    But she did not fit anything else.

    She has been wanting to eat dry food so I let her. It’s good because she dint want to eat too much of her wet food. I don’t think she likes it as much as she used to.
