We have an Ameraucana that was fine as a young chick then at about 6 weeks old she started developing what looked like a splayed leg. We tried correcting it multiple ways to no avail. We decided to leave it and see what happens. Now her knee on that leg is larger than the other leg but the foot still looks normal. Now she is about 22 weeks, she hasn't grown very big and hasn't started laying (not sure she ever will). Our other 3 are laying just fine(barred rock, buff and wyandotte) She still eats and poops just fine but now she is spending all her time in the nesting boxes as if she is broody. I can't find anything online about hens going broody before ever laying or about chicks getting splayed legs after about the first 2 weeks (that's one reason we left it alone). Any suggestions would be great. I hate to put her down when she seems ok despite the gimpy leg, but I think we might have to.
