    Oh, thats a drag! sorry, this might help.does it look like this?

    Spraddle leg, also known as 'splay leg,' is a deformity of a chicken's legs, characterized by feet pointing to the side, instead of forward, making walking difficult, if not impossible. Spraddle leg can be permanent if left uncorrected, but it's simple to correct.
