My 7 week old RIR have the run of a large yard now, I started to notice that one of the chickens stands with two legs, but one of the legs seems turned a funny way at the joint, however when he runs a long distance he does so on one leg, which I didn't know was possible. He's healthy in every other way and keeps up with the others just fine, is there any way of fixing the leg, is it some kind of hereditary thing? Should I just not worry about it as long as he can get around fine?
I wouldn't know about fixing it, but if he gets around fine maybe there really isn't any need.

Here's a *bump*. Perhaps someone will come along that has had experience with this sort of thing.
I have a RIR Roo who has the same problem, he is now 16 wks old and looks as healthy as all the other. As long as he stays healthy i will keep him
